Spanish GOLD Treasure Found Offshore Florida

Over 50 gold coins, with one with an estimated value of $500K, and 40 feet of gold chain were discovered off Ft. Pierce Florida.

Part of a "Lost Treasure Fleet" of Spanish galleons taking gold from the Americas back to Spain, 11 ships were lost in a storm in 1715.

The article has embedded video of the gold coins.
