Certificate of Authenticity
For 22 years, our company has had a working contract with the government of the Dominican Republic. Since 1994, we have been recovering wonderful treasures from the world famous Spanish galleon "Nuestra Señora de la Concepción", that sank on November 2, 1641. We have recovered the offered coins from The Concepción with full government participation on board, the M.V. Dolphin, during the recovery. These offered web site coins have come directly from the Concepción site to the Government Preservation Laboratories and then to our company, without any other entities handling them.

The purchased coins come in a blue velvet pouch nestled in a beautifully presented Certificate of Authenticity in the form of a treasure chest. The chest unfolds to tell the complete story of the Spanish Galleon "Nuestra Señora de la Concepción" (The Concepción). The certificates are individually numbered and signed by noted underwater explorer,
Captain Tracy Bowden and the Executive Secretary of the Commission of Underwater Archaeological Recovery of the Dominican Republic, Arq. Pedro J. Borrell.
