About Atocha Coins

On September 6th, 1622, a ship named "Nuestra Señora de Atocha" (Our Woman of Spring) from the Kingdom of Spain bearing gold, gems, and other valuables to The New World capsized off the coast of Key West in Florida, sinking the treasure for hundreds of years.

This all changed in 1969 when a team of scuba divers led by American treasure hunter Mel Fisher began searching the seabeds in the Florida Keys for the missing treasure. After an arduous expedition, a radio call went out from Fisher's son, Kane Fisher, who jubilantly exclaimed that the team had finally found the Spanish treasure.

Amid the priceless discovery, the State of Florida's government claimed title to the shipwreck, thus commencing a legal battle that would last eight years. On 1 July 1982, the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of Fisher's team and awarded it the rights to the entirety of the shipwrecked treasure.

In 2014, Nuestra Señora de Atocha was added to the Guinness Book of World Records for being the most valuable shipwreck to be recovered, as it was carrying roughly 40 tons of gold and silver and 71 lb worth of Colombian emeralds, among other artifacts.
