The 18th-Century Musketeer Coin from the New World Hoard
The secret 1711 “MOUSQUETAIRE” treasure coin — certified genuine by NGC — from the mysterious NEW WORLD HOARD…
• Known as “Mousquetaires” because of the famous French musketeer symbol on the back, these 30-denier coins were struck by the French mint in Lyon in 1711.
• Intended for use in New Orleans and the French colonies of Canada and Louisiana, they never made it to the New World, but instead were discovered centuries later on England’s south coast.
• Why they were secretly stashed away, and found in a sealed glass jar buried under a shop in Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire, is a mystery that may never be solved!
• Each was struck by hand by skilled artisans more than 300 years ago, making it a one-of-a-kind piece of colonial American history, slightly different from all others.
• Certified by NGC, one of the world’s leading coin-grading companies, to guarantee that it is genuine and was discovered as part of the long-forgotten New World Hoard.
