There Was A Chest Filled With Silver Coins

The divers went on to discover a war chest filled to the brim with silver coins. War chests were necessary to have during maritime travel because not only did they carry the crew’s wages, but the funds also came in handy in the event of an emergency.

The silver coins, however, weren’t the only funds uncovered from the shipwreck. Another collection of coins found within the wreckage led to a lot of historical speculation.
