A cursed Aztec coin from Gore Verbinski's action-adventure film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Central to the film's plot, the coins formed the vast treasure hoard of Cortes, which was hidden on the Isla de Muerta and transformed Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and his crew into the undead.
This particular coin was given directly from Verbinski to J.C. Spink, his co-executive producer on The Ring. It is made from cast metal and features an ornate central skull symbol with a surrounding solar pattern on one side. Also included is a letter of authenticity signed by Spink's brother, Daniel. The coin exhibits minor scuffing, but it remains in good overall condition. Dimensions: 1.5" x 1.5" x 0.25" (4 cm x 4 cm x 0.75 cm)
Estimate: $3,000 - 5,000
