This French Silver Ecu is an authentic artifact from an 18th century shipwreck! La Dromadaire was a vessel owned by the French East India Company that departed from the Port of Lorient on February 6th 1762. After thirteen days at sea, inclement weather caused the ship to sink near the Cape Verde Islands. Built in 1758, the 520 ton ship carried 154 people (of which 77 survived), 20 guns, 1000 cannon balls and a chest of silver. The wreck of Le Dromadaire was discovered in January 1996, leading to the recovery of 3,377 coins.

Product Highlights:

  • The obverse features a portrait of the King of France, either Louis XIV or Louis XV.
  • The reverse design is composed of elements from the French Coat of Arms: a cluster of fleur-de-lis symbols at the center surrounded by a wreath, with an ornate crown above. Inscriptions include date of issue and Mint mark.
  • This Silver Ecu coin of France, struck 1700-1762, was submitted to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's specialized Shipwreck Certification division for authentication. NGC has confirmed that the coin is a Genuine artifact recovered from the La Dromadaire shipwreck discovery in 1996. The coin is presented in a sonically sealed in NGC holder, accompanied by a certification label declaring its unique pedigree.
