This ship was heading from the gold fields of California to Central America when it crossed paths with a hurricane, and sunk. Over 500 people were killed and 30,000 pounds of gold was lost during this event. This gold was recovered by a remote operated vehicle in 1988. This gold is certified and sealed by the Professional Coin Grading Service. They have also authenticated it as being from this shipwreck.
