Product Description

QSB is proud to announce the first issue of Regency Mint’s Collector Classic Series, where historic coins are reborn. This series will feature the designs of Vintage World Coins as .999 Fine Silver bullion medals.

Each Pillar Dollar round is unique due to the Antiqued finish that is applied. This gives the sense of an old Spanish coin that was recovered from a Pirate treasure or shipwreck. Each piece is struck in .999 Fine Silver, and weighs between 30.5 and 31.5 grams each (a little under to a little over one troy ounce). The original coins were issued weighing 27.47 grams with a fineness of 0.93055, giving an ASW (actual silver weight) of 0.8218 troy ounces.

History of Spanish Pillar Dollars

All foreign silver and gold coins were legal tender in the U.S. until 1857. This means that everyone from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln used Spanish coins due to the lack of circulating coinage in the country until then. This also includes coins for Spanish colonies such as the Mexican, French, Portuguese, Brazilian and British colonies.

The obverse has “VTRAQUE VNUM” above in Latin, which translates as “BOTH ARE ONE”, referring to the two hemispheres shown below, which reminds the holder of Spain’s influence in the East and the West. Aside the two sides of the globe are two crowned pillars, which represent the Pillars of Hercules. Southern tip of Spain and the Rock of Gibraltar to the North, and either Monte Hacho or Jebel Musa on the North shore of Africa, marking the Southern side of the opening to the Mediterranean Sea. The wreaths on the two pillars say “PLUS” and “ULTRA”, meaning “MORE BEYOND”, again stating the extent of the Spanish Empire beginning in the 15th century.

    I really like these replica pieces. They’re really well done. I especially like the colorful toning and realistic finish the rounds have. I imagine they’ll only get more beautiful as they age.

    They look awesome! Had I not known they were rounds, I would’ve thought they were the real deal. Keep up the fantastic work!

    I think they are amazingly beautiful. I think they will do very well because right now everything that has a rustic, antiqued and pirate these or look to them are doing very well right now.

    These are great replicas. It beats paying a few hundred or more for the real thing which may or may not be counterfeit. It’s so close anyone not knowledgeable on them can be fooled at first.

    Great looking rounds. The detail is amazing. Looking forward to picking up at least one roll of every new round in the series. Would be great if your mint produced a new series every ninety days or so. There are so many great early coin designs you could replicate…. I can’t wait to see what the next reproduction will be!

    These are gorgeous, but I don’t understand printing the incorrect “mint” date on the coin. Even as a vintage coin, I still think they should print the year they were minted. Just personal preference though. Still didn’t stop me from buying a few. 🙂 Thanks QSB for your great products and service.

    Great replicas. I will continue to purchase this series of replicas if they are all as nice as the first.
