Every child knows the image of piles and piles of precious coins. Thousands of gold and silver medallions spilling over the ground in some unseen secret place lost from the memory of any living soul. Instant wealth waiting to be found.

Treasure: The artifacts recovered from the site include over 500,000 silver coins weighing more than 17 tons, hundreds of gold coins, worked gold, and other artifacts. All recovered items have been legally imported into the Unites States and placed in a secure, undisclosed location where they are undergoing conservation and documentation.

It is believed that this recovery constitutes the largest collection of coins ever excavated from a historical shipwreck site. They were recovered in conformity with Salvage Law and the Law of the Sea Convention, beyond the territorial waters or legal jurisdiction of any country.

The "Black Swan" project returns with their loot to the safety of a well guarded port. At this time, there are no verifiable reports as to the location of the individual known as Jack Sparrow.
