Treasure Hunters Find $1M in Gold at Underwater Wreckage Site
A family of treasure hunters struck gold off the coast of Florida.
The Schmitt family found more than $1 million worth of gold coins and chains while diving at the wreckage site of a fleet of Spanish ships.
The fleet of 11 ships sunk off the coast of Florida about 300 years ago. Six have been identified, and five more are still out there, waiting to be discovered.
Brent Brisben founded 1715 Fleet — Queens Jewels LLC, which exclusively owns the rights to dive at the wreckage site, and the Schmitt family works for him.
Brisben said that the million-dollar discovery was “a magical day" for himself and the Schmitt family.
