Ahoy... April here!

Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and we’ve been thinking couples treasure to mark this most romantic of holidays! Our first pic comes straight from our "Sealed In Time" line of pure bronze and silver jewelry that I create with genuine wax sealing devices from times past. This seal depicts two hearts, tied with ribbon and the words “For Ever.” In bronze from $59, in Silver from $79, or with an authentic Ruby from $89

And just for our email and Facebook friends, we’ll include a genuine crystal clear Sea Glass pendant with a Swarovski crystal charm and chain in all phone or in-store purchases over $100 between now and the big day – February 14th!

The weekend before Christmas in Cannon Beach! Come out to the coast and join us in our cozy little town!

Dragons! Of all the mythical creatures that have journeyed with us from a time when our ancient ancestors gathered around the fire to tell tales of powerful creatures of a world just beyond our sight, Dragons have reigned supreme.

And now, Ancient Celtic Dragons have come to live at Cannon Beach Treasure Company! To the Ancient Celts, a dragon was a powerful protector and companion of the gods. Tasked with protecting the Celtic people, the animals of the earth, and the earth itself, dragons were revered throughout the Celtic tribes. In fact, holy sites were established where Dragons were said to pass or reside, so powerful was their influence on the natural world.

It is not surprising that some of the earliest Celtic art features Dragons – and we’ve been blessed to acquire some of the most unique bronze Celtic artifacts we’ve ever seen – in the form of Dragons. Dating from approximately 700 BC, the S-Shaped Dragon, along with the Open Circle Dragon, may have been used as clothing fasteners as well as protective talismans. The Lacy Dragon was used as a protective amulet all those thousands of years ago. Each of these artifacts accompanied an ancient Celt on their life’s journey.

While we will never know the Celt who created or wore these artifacts, we do know that dragon amulets were cherished for their ability to protect and defend their wearer. They are extremely rare – we’ve only seen a few such artifacts.

Now, just in time for the holidays, we are announcing the newest additions to our Empires Collection… Museum Recreations of these rare Celtic Dragon artifacts in bronze and silver. Using exacting industrial casting methods to create them – they are almost exact duplicates of the ancient amulets created by Celtic artisans almost 3,000 years ago. The largest is about the size of a US Quarter, and best of all, they are available from $39 – so you, too, can take a Celtic Dragon with you on your own life’s journey – after all, you wouldn’t want to be without one!

Ah, the waves, the wind, the sand in your toes. If you’ve got that girl who’s always dreaming of the sea on your shopping list this season, have we got the answer…

For the “Always a Beach Girl”:
• Sea Glass, of course! What’s better than that rare color – red, turquoise or lime green – or the quintessential Sea Foam – the color of the sea after a storm? (From $15)
• A silver shipwreck coin with a ship on it! (These “ship shillings,” recovered by Robert, were minted in the Netherlands, but recovered in Galle Harbor, Sri Lanka – apparently the coins went a-Viking!) (Pendants in sterling and gold from $399)
• Fossil jewelry – Orthoceras, Trilobites and Sand Dollar fossils, oh my!
• Or a genuine Cannon Beach Sand Dollar in a locket pendant ($39)

If you’d like us to rush out an ocean-going treasure for your beach guy or girl, give the beach girls (that would be April and Lilly) a call… they can help you pick the perfect gift for your beach baby! 503.436.1626

Ahoy... April here with an exciting announcement!

NEW – Medieval Angel Coins Just in Time for the Holidays! Just in time for the holidays, our Medieval Angel Coins are ready for adoption!

These stunning French deniers – just about the size of a US nickel – are found throughout the crusader states, along pilgrim routes to the Holy Land. Each is a tiny miracle – a survivor almost one-thousand-years-old that has a fascinating story to tell.

Made from 1157 AD to 1276 AD, these classically-medieval coins were used extensively in the Levant – the area traveled by the Crusaders on their way from Europe to Jerusalem. Their design is French, although they may have been minted in the Levant, rather than France. They depict a beautiful cross and crescent, in addition to the classic Crusader cross, on one side, and a stylized Angel on the other – hence their nickname: the “Angel Denier.”

We have a few of these amazing, and very rare, treasure coins ready in time for the holidays. If you’d like one for yourself or someone you love, just give us a call!

Individual Coins: $99 - $125 Bezeled in Sterling: $249 Bezeled in 14K Gold: $399

Calling all Gladiator fans – come on, you know the type! If you’ve got an honorary ancient warrior on your list this Holiday season, go all out! After all, how amazing is the gift of an ancient coin or artifact he can display on his desk (or along with his sword and scabbard).

For the Honorary Ancient Warrior:
• Ancient Roman Empire bronze and silver coins recently unearthed in Spain, Britain and France
• A Viking Solar Cross – the quintessential Viking seafaring symbol for anyone who is ready to “Go a-Viking” (the term “Viking” means a nautical adventure… to “go a-Viking” means to sally forth on a seafaring adventure – who knew?)
• Crusader’s coins and crosses from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Crusades

We’re here every day this holiday season, so just give us a ring! 503.436.1626

Got someone to get a holiday gift for that you can’t pry away from the treasure hunting shows on the telly? (Don’t worry, it’s a fairly common problem – no cure, but with rum it can be effectively managed.)

Check out this list, guaranteed to make their treasure-hunting dreams come true!

For Arm-Chair Treasure Hunters:
• A 1600’s Copper Pirate Coin from the Refugio Bay Pirate Cache
• A Gleaming Silver Treasure Coin from the Lafitte Hoard (These are almost gone, so if you would like a silver Spanish Piece of Eight discovered in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, you’ll want to grab one now!)
• An Ancient Greek states tetradrachm (a really big silver coin minted circa 187 BC) with Hercules wearing the Head of the Nemean Lion (yeah, how cool is that)

Give our in-house treasure hunter Robert a call, he’d love to help you get your treasure fan just what they’re dreaming of this year. 503.436.1626

Ahoy, Lilly here! We wanted to take a moment and wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! We truly appreciate your support throughout the year, and as a special thank you we will be giving a free Biblical Widow's Mite with any purchase over $100! These coins were recovered in the Holy Lands and were used by Jesus to teach about the state of your heart - a particularly meaningful message at this time of year! We hope you are all blessed with full hearts and surrounded by the ones you love.

And don't forget to join us on Friday for Mimosa Madness! Why go to a stuffy mall when you can come to Cannon Beach to get all your holiday shopping done in one day while enjoying your favorite adult beverages? As per tradition we will not be serving Mimosas, we will be serving Robert’s famous pirate spiked coffee!
