    russbalbironaportfolio.blogspot.com www.treasurebone.blogspot.com In 1987 Dominic Addario, a boat tour operator, received information from a couple of surfers who had reported seeing a half buried cannon near modern day Jupiter Inlet on the east coast of Florida. Flash forward to 2012, Addario no longer runs boat tours, he’s in the treasure recovery business. Addario and his team known as Jupiter Wreck Inc. have been working this site for the past 25 years. They’ve recovered masses of silver and gold coins that date between 1652 and 1659. “There is no question in our minds it is a Spanish ship,” stated Addario in an article on the Buisness News Daily Website ( http ) On Jupiter Wreck Inc’s. own website ( jupitercoins.com ) they’ve gone one step further, hinting that this shipwreck is quite possibly the San Miguel Archangel. The San Miguel Archangel sank in 1659 after taking a beating from hurricane force winds and 30 foot waves. She was Spain’s economic hope and rumored to carry the personal fortune of the Count of Salvatierra. The wreck site is in 10 foot of water and is no further from shore than a toss of a tennis balls “If you had a tennis ball from the shore line, you could pop it right out into this area. It’s right there” said Jeff Gehring of Jupiter Wreck Inc during an interview with Fox 29 Eye On South Florida. You can view the video of this interview at Jupiter’s website. The site has produced canons, cannon balls, muskets and of course thousands of coins

    Largest Shipwreck Treasure Find Ever - VOA Story

    An American company is in the process of determining the value of a haul of sunken treasure, thought to be the biggest ever discovered. Odyssey Marine Exploration says it is examining more than half-a-million coins from the shipwreck as part of a find that could net it around half a billion dollars. The bounty has sparked public interest in the controversial business of treasure hunting vy Odyssey Marine Exploration. “Black Swan is the code-name of a secret operation off the coast of Europe which may have discovered the biggest haul of shipwreck treasure ever found. Odyssey won’t reveal the identity of the ship, or even when it sank, to avoid giving clues to other treasure hunters. Odyssey will only say it went down in international waters. In the crates are 17 tons of silver and gold coins and other valuables arriving in the US, destined for a secret location. Mark Gordon, from Odyssey Marine Exploration, says an expert in 17th century coins estimated the value of the haul. “He looked at a representative sample of the coins and in amongst the group that he saw he was able to determine that there were values ranging from 0 to 00 for individual coins, and the mean value of the group that he looked at was about 00,” says Gordon.

Odyssey estimates there are some three million shipwrecks
