For the second time in two months, water divers have found another pile of sunken gold coins off the east coast of Florida.

The gold were worth $4.5 million, and were sunken 300 years ago when a fleet of 11 colonial Spanish ships sank off the coast of Florida.

Back then, the loss of the Spanish fleet was the biggest maritime disaster off Florida, and about 1,000 people had perished in the disaster.

Four crew members from the ship S/V Capitana discovered the Spanish gold coins nearly three weeks ago; and they found just nine gold coins – called Royals, with each of them worth $300,000.

Nearly a month ago, a family in Florida discovered Spanish gold coins worth $1 million from the same Florida coast.

Following the latest discovery, the four crew members will today share information about how they came upon the jackpot and the public will be able to ask them questions.
