Arguably the most significant find in Spanish colonial numismatics, this series of shipwrecks off the east coast of Florida produced thousands of gold and silver cobs, including about 90% of the known population of gold "Pieces of Eight" or "Cob" as well as some of the most beautiful gold jewelry the world has known. Gold cobs especially felt a huge impact from the 1715 fleet, which produced many dates and types that had never been seen before.

A convoy of twelve treasure-laden ships, the 1715 fleet was headed back to Spain when it encountered a hurricane in July of 1715 off the east coast of Florida. All but one of the ships sank, many close to shore. The survivors set up camps and salvage efforts soon commenced. Although much of the registered cargo was recovered by the Spaniards, a great deal of unregistered goods remained, occasionally washing ashore in the centuries that followed.

The 1715 fleet was essentially re-discovered by Kip Wagner in the 1950s, who began large-scale recovery efforts under the name Real Eight Company off the coast of Florida. Coins found date from 1712 to 1715 and were minted under Philip V of Spain.
