From an entire sunken treasure fleet worth hundreds of millions, to a the Knights Templars hidden treasure. This is a list of 5 Lost Treasures You Can Still Find.
The San Miguel & The Lost 1715 Treasure Fleet
In 1715 the Spanish Government compiled a treasure so large it took a fleet of 11 treasure ships to carry it, and to defend it from the pirates they knew would try to steal it. They still didn;t feel qute safe so they waited until the beginning of hurricane season before they set off to scare away the pirates, this completely destroyed the entire fleet, and the remains were raided by pirates. The majority of treasure was never found by the Spanish or Pirates alike.
The Lost Fabergé Eggs
Tsar Nicholas the Second commissioned 52 jeweled eggs to be made for his wife by a master goldsmith. In 1917 a revolution occurred and he was executed. His eggs were confiscated and and secured at the Kremlin Armoury in a vault. Although most of the eggs were sold, eight have gone missing completely, perhaps stolen. One of the eggs that was found was sod for $8.9 million. Meaning the seven left could be worth $62.3 million.
The treasure of the Flor De La Mar
In 1502 this giant Portugese Frigate was carrying the largest amount of treasure the Portugese had ever assembled onto a ship. They trusted it would be safe as this ship and captain had proved themselves before in naval battles. Unfortunately in the straits of Malacca the ship was caught in a violent storm and the treasure was lost, never to be found again.
The Amber Room was a room where the walls were made of gold, and it was worth so much money that the room was stolen completely. Previously located in Catherine’s Palace in St. Petersberg, it was worth about $140 million. It’s hard to imagine a whole room being stolen but it’s been confirmed that this isn’t a myth.
The Treasure Of The Nights Templar
The nights Templar were a charity that helped Christian pilgrims. Over the years they made so much money from donations that they became one of the biggest military organizations in the world. The church turned on them however and torture them until they gave up the location of the hidden treasure. Which they did, however when the church got there the treasure was gone, and so had thousands of the knights in the group never to be seen again. The treasure never again came into circulation meaning it’s most likely still out there waiting to be found.
