Default Florida divers find over 300 coins worth $4.5M

Quote:

It's been quite a summer for treasure hunting in Florida.

Less than a month after the Schmitt family of Sanford announced their $1 million sunken treasure find, Brent Brisben announced his $4.5 million discovery.

On July 30 and 31 off the coast of Vero Beach, Brisben, who is captain of the S/V Capitana, and his crew recovered 350 gold coins.

Nine of the coins found are known as Royals and valued at $300,000 apiece; these were specially made for King of Spain Phillip V in the early 1700s.

"People love treasure stories. It resonates with everybody — every demographic, young and old, rich and poor," Brisben said. "People freak out that we're literally 10-15 feet off the beach in 2-3 feet of water."

The treasure finds have significant meaning because July 30, 2015, marked the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Fleet shipwreck.

The only thing I ever found at the beach was empty beer bottles and used condoms after Spring Break was over.
