Lost off the British Coast for 175 Years, This 10 Cash Coin Can Finally Tell Its Tales!

On January 24th, 1809, three ships owned by the East India Company set sail from London. The three ships, including the Admiral Gardner, sank in a storm barely 80 miles out from London. The Admiral Gardner sat at the bottom of the sea until she was rediscovered and gave up her cargo of 10 Cash coins in 1984.

Now, you can own one of these 10 Cash bronze coins, struck for the East India Company. Each is certified as genuine by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and encapsulated in an acrylic holder for protection, displayed in a clear box with a story card and certificate of authenticity.

The coin bears the East India Company's iconic logo on the obverse. It was one of the first coins to be minted by the steam press process and was meant to fuel trade in India, which the company ruled at the time. However, the coin could only be used for goods and services if it actually got there. Unfortunately, on one fateful night, it only traveled as far as the West British coastline.

This is one of the most famous shipwrecks in history, and securing this certified example of the 10 Cash East India coin will make a worthy addition to any coin collection. Order yours today!
