GOLD WATERS

$1M Shipwreck Treasure Found in Florida

More than $1 million worth of sunken treasure was recovered off the coast of Florida. The operation brought up gold—51 coins and 40 feet of chain—from shipwrecks called the Treasure Fleet, which sank on July 31, 1715. The fleet comprised of 11 galleons stocked with treasure making its way from the New World back to Spain, but were caught in a hurricane on the way from Havana.
