Shipwreck Treasure 

Shipwrecks, pirates and treasure, its the stuff of fantasy and legend but for a company of modern-day treasure hunters, it is a profitable business.

Odyssey Marine Exploration is a leader in the field of deep-ocean shipwreck exploration and not for the first time, they have landed a record breaking haul of treasure. Their latest find includes over 500,000 silver coins weighing more than 17 tons, hundreds of gold coins, worked gold, and other artifacts. It is believed that this recovery constitutes the largest collection of coins ever excavated from a historical shipwreck site, codenamed Black Swan.

The 17th-century treasure is estimated to be worth around $500 million but sorry treasure seekers, the company hasn't posted the geo-location of the site which is some 40 miles south west of England's Lands End.
