I read this story a couple of days ago and was really amazed. Most notable was that this gold was found in shallow water (only about 6 feet deep). They also believe that there is $400 million more in these gold coins yet to be found! I started wondering how common this was, and how many people are actively working today as 'treasure hunters.' I read another news report right after this about two individuals that claim to have found a Nazi treasure train in a buried tunnel in Poland. The contents of this train could be worth billions.
VERO BEACH, Fla —Queens Jewels, a historic shipwreck salvage operation that owns the exclusive rights to the remains of the 1715 Treasure Fleet, has recovered gold coins off the Treasure Coast valued at $4.5 million.
New Book Shares How To Become A Treasure Hunter
I found a very interesting book that discusses the whole process of becoming a treasure hunter. The book was written by Jack Thompson, a real treasure life hunter himself. It looks absolutely fascinating, and he even offers a free sample chapter. I find it astounding that treasures, like the one found in Vero Beach, can still be discovered today. I would be very interested in reading stories of any other individuals that have been involved with treasure hunting. Please use the comments section below and we can start a conversation on this.
