    Provenance : Shipwreck El Cazador

    El Cazador was a Spanish Brig of War loaded with silver coins, heading for the then Spanish port of New Orleans. The El Cazador was was lost in January 1784. The loss of these coins potentially triggered the Spanish to cede back the land to the French, who sold it to the United States in 1804 (The Louisiana Purchase), hence the name, “The wreck that changed the world.” The wreck was found off the coast of Louisiana in 1993.
