Did you know? At two in the morning on Wednesday, July 31, 1715, the legendary Spanish Plate Fleet, consisting of twelve ships destined for Spain was lost, save one ship, as a result of a devastating Atlantic Ocean hurricane. Fourteen million pesos and more than a thousand lives were lost! Even still, priceless remnants of the disaster continue to be discovered off the coast of Florida. In 2015, the 300th anniversary of the Spanish Fleet disaster, more that 350 gold coins (estimated total value, $4.5M) were recovered by the 1715 Fleet-Queens Jewels, LLC, a celebrated shipwreck recovery company. The discovery was made in only six feet of water and a mere one hundred feet from the shore in Vero Beach, Florida! Fleet-Queens Jewels, LLC say they will keep searching for more treasure because there is still $400M down there!
