This Gold Has Sunk

(But maybe not for long.) There are 2.6 billion British pounds worth of gold coins at the bottom of the Straights of Gibraltar. They're on a British ship, off the Spanish and Andalusian coast.

The warship has been located, but the coins are still down there. The British have hired Floridian company Odyssey Marine to survey the wreck. The Spanish have claimed the wreckage in their waters, as has its own regional government, that of the Costa Del Sol, Andalusia.

This is going to be fun. Read a short article here.
