A family of treasure hunters has found rare gold artifacts of estimated worth $1 million, or nearly Rs 64 million, buried in sea off the cost of Florida in the US. Boat captain Eric Schmitt and his family made the find on June 17, about 15 feet deep in the Atlantic Ocean off Fort Pierce. The items recovered include 51 gold coins and 40 feet of ornate gold chain. The artifacts are said to date from a 1715 maritime tragedy in which 11 Spain-bound galleons were lost during a hurricane.
