In 2014, a second salvage of the SS Central America site was conducted and the fruits of that work have yielded more than $40 million in new treasure. The Ship of Gold is undoubtedly one of the biggest stories in numismatics for the year 2018. It’s estimated that 3,100 gold coins, 45 gold bars, and thousands of mint state silver coins from a private safe within the SS Central America were recovered this time.
