The MRR Expedition Team has recovered 2 gold two escudos, proving a successful start to the 2016 season along Florida's Treasure Coast. The gold coins, minted in Bogota and carried on the 1715 fleet galleons, were discovered Thursday while working an area along the Douglass Beach wreck site. For diver Josh Fisher, this was the first of hopefully many recoveries of gold artifacts from the 1715 wreck sites.
Diver Josh Fisher and Capt. Dan Porter recover gold coins!
