In the olden days of Pirates, coins were cut into eighths to make change. Back then, the true silver Spanish Ocho (8) Reale coin would be cut into pieces to make change. Our faux silver reproduction is true to shape and imprinting (but, alas, it is not real silvers). It is cut into pieces of the Eight Reale coin: one half, one quarter and two eighths!
This makes a fun gift for anyone interested in Pirates, the conquests of the sea, or history of money!
