A diver exploring an old shipwreck finds Gold artifacts worth over $1 Million

A Florida family has been rewarded for years of treasure hunting after finding gold artifacts worth $1 million or more from the wreckage of a 1715 Spanish fleet that sank in the Atlantic Ocean.
 
Eric Schmitt found the coins in 15 feet of water off Fort Pierce, approximately 130 miles north of Miami. The find included 51 gold coins of various denominations and 40 feet of ornate gold chain.


The gold chains are made of small, handcrafted, two-sided links of six-petaled olive blossoms. They were called money chains and are believed to have been used as a tax-free coinage.

Under federal and state law, Florida will take possession of up to 20% of the find for display in a state museum. The Schmitt family will keep the remainder.

Wow, makes me think of those movies and books based on treasure hunting. The seas remain unchartered territory for man, as there remain millions laying underneath undiscovered.
