The owner of a salvage boat has reviewed a large hold of gold coins which have lying on the seabed off the coast of Florida for the past 300 years. The treasure was found last month, here is Gary ODonoghue. “On July 30th 1715, a hurricane dashed 11 Spanish galleons onto riffs of Florida's east coast. The ships that went down were carrying gold coins and jewels from Havana destined for the king of Spain. A thousand people have reported to have died in the wrecks. Treasure hunting is a popular pastime in the waters around Florida, and this find turned up in just a meter of water closing to the shore.”

一艘打捞船的船主在靠近美国佛罗里达州海岸的海底发现了大量金币。在海底沉睡了300年的宝藏是在上个月被发现的,这里是格雷.多诺霍为您报道。1715年6月30日,一场飓风致11艘西班牙大型帆船撞向佛罗里达州东海岸的悬崖峭壁。这些沉船原是从哈瓦那装载上金银珠宝送给西班牙国王的。据报道甲板上的几千人都丢失了他们的生命。后来人们热衷于在佛罗里达附近的海域搜寻随船沉入海底的珠宝,这次发现金币的地方仅仅距离海岸附近1米。
