My Second Hammered. This Time Spanish

In December of last year I hit the jackpot and found a 1551-1553 English shilling.

Now for many of you that is no great feat but I live in Victoria BC Canada and the city's history only goes back 150 odd years. Well on the 15th of May this year I found my second hammered coin here in Victoria. This time Spanish but, now I am only guessing, this time it's Spanish from the 1600s. If anyone knows what the possible date is please comment. It's approximately 18mm so I think that makes this a 1 reale.
