Dive in and explore the exclusive collection of handcrafted authentic treasure coin jewelry at Lily & Co. Jewelers to discover the prefect Father’s Day gift. Each piece, created from historic shipwreck coins recovered from the depths of the sea, is one of a kind and guaranteed authentic.
“There is a wonderful selection of pendants dad would be proud to wear,” says Dan Schuyler, who co-owns Lily & Co., 520 Tarpon Bay Rd., with Realtor Karen Bell. “Search for your piece from the Mother Lode of the Atocha and Santa Margarita, part of the 1622 Spanish shipwrecks.”
The mother lode of (Our Lady of) Atocha’s silver, gold and emeralds was discovered in July 1985, after a team of American treasure hunters searched the sea bed for 16-and-a-half years. The Santa Margarita was part of a fleet dispatched to salvage the Atocha, but run aground near the sunken Atocha. It’s mother lode was discovered in 1980 by Mel Fisher who attempted to recover treasure from the Atocha.
The Lost Galleon collection includes rare high-grade pieces from Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, sunken Shipwreck Treasure and more. Each coin is carefully custom framed into a variety of distinct styles by a master goldsmith. “It’s extremely important the treasure coins are not altered or damaged during the setting process,” explains Schuyler.
