You know the saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure“? Well this Floridian treasure hunter definitely struck treasure when he found coins from a Spanish-fleet shipwreck.
Eric Schmitt was diving his way through Florida coast when a gold coin struck his eye. At first, he cheered but when he found out that there are more coins, he got filled with joy and excitement. 51 gold coins, 40 feet of gold chain, and a Tricentennial Royal were found summing up to more than $1 Million. Who knew change would be that valuable?
