The ecstasy of gold: Five treasure finds of recent memory

May 24, 2016

1. The Staffordshire Hoard

A sheet gold plaque with birds of prey is seen as part of the famous Staffordshire Hoard of Anglo Saxon material, presented at the British Museum, in central London, Tuesday Nov. 3, 2009. The hoard, that has been declared Treasure, was found by Terry Herbert, a metal detectorist in July this BlueHost优惠码 year, and is the largest Anglo Saxon hoard ever found in the UK comprising over 1,500 individual items.

Discovered by Terry Herbert on July 5, 2009, near Hammerwich, Staffordshire, England, as he was searching some recently ploughed farmland with a metal detector, the gold artifacts are valued at $4.6 million.

Over the next five days, enough gold was recovered to fill 244 bags, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver ever found. Eventually, a full excavation revealed 3,5000 items, most from the 7th and 8th centuries from the Kingdom of Mercia.

Why and how the treasure ended up there has yet to be determined. The trove was purchased by the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery.

2. The gold coins of Caesarea

Found in February of 2015, scuba divers exploring the sea floor near Caesarea National Park in Israel thought they had found a children’s toy when they discovered the first gold piece.

But there was more to the find, and nearly 2,000 coins were recovered of various denominations –the earliest of which had been minted in the late 9th century.

Easily the largest collection of gold coins discovered in Israel, a historian posited the wealth may have been in transit to pay the Fatimid military garrison stationed nearby.

So high is the value, the word “priceless” is used to describe the find.

3. The Wreck of the San Jose

Found by a group of US investors in 2015 off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia, this Spanish galleon is thought to have sunk 307 years ago in 2015.

Total findings include $1 billion in gold, silver and jewelry, sent from South American colonies to the king of Spain. The ship was attacked by the British Navy during the War of Spanish Succession, killing all 600 on board.

The treasure is to be put on display in a museum in Cartagena, but a legal dispute between the Colombian government and the finders continues, and the treasure remains at sea.

4. The Wreck of the Capitana

Found in 2013, a Florida family in recovered $1 million in gold coins and jewels made for the king of Spain, Phillip V, including a rare “Tricentennial Royal,” from 1715, in the shallow waters near Fort Pierce.

Capitan-General Don Juan Esteban de Ubilla and his 11 ships sank and died during a hurricane while sailing from Havana.

The find is estimated to be worth at least $1 million. The Tricentennial Royal is valued at $500,000 alone.

5. Ohio Baseball Card collection

In a slight twist of the theme, but no less impressive, is the discovery of 100 year old baseball cards found in an attic in Defiance, Ohio in 2012.

Karl Kissner and his cousin found the cards, which belonged to their grandfather, Carl Hench, who died in the 40s.

They theorize that Hench stored the cards inside his attic and forgot about them –his daughter kept the house until her death in 2012, leaving it to her 20 nephews and nieces.

The cards sold at auction for $556,000.
