Deep Sea Treasure Diver Finds $1 Million In Gold

Deep sea diver Eric Schmitt was diving off the Florida coast when he discovered the sparkly treasure from a 1715 Spanish shipwreck. He literally couldn’t contain his excitement while rummaging through the sea sand to find gold coins and gold chains, which are reportedly worth over $1 million. Queens Jewels LLC has had the salvaging rights to the 1715 Fleet, a group of Spanish ships that were shipwrecked off the Florida coast on July 31, 1715, since 2010. Since the ship was discovered about 50 years ago divers have discovered about $50 million worth of treasure onboard the ship.
