1808 India 10 Cash Coin from the Admiral Gardner Shipwreck.
On January 24, 1809, three ships owned by the East India Company - The Brittania, the Carnatic, and the Admiral Gardner - embarked on the long journey from London to the East Indies. The Admiral Gardner was loaded with some 46 tons of copper coins struck at the Soho Mint for the Company's use in Madras, India.
Rounding Margate, some 80 miles from London, all three ships sunk, just after midnight on January 25th. Although the wreck of the Admiral Gardner was part of local lore, no trace of the ship was found until 1984 when a passing fisherman snagged his nets on the wreckage. A year later, a team of divers salvaged some of the lost treasure including a sealed barrel containing some 28,000 pieces. This coin is one of them.
This lot comes with the NGC Certified Shipwreck Coin and the Certificate of Authenticity card.
