Black Swan Shipwreck

It’s safe to say that upon recovering 500,000 gold and silver coins worth approximately $254 million, the Florida-based company called Odyssey Marine Exploration discovered the most valuable shipwreck in the Atlantic Ocean.

After conferring with the Spanish Government, many believe this lost ship is the Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes, a vessel that British war ships sank in 1804. According to historical accounts, the ship carried with it nearly 4.5 million gold and silver pesos.
