A shipwreck that could have as much as $17 billion worth of gold, silver, and jewels was just found off the coast of Colombia. That's a mind boggling amount of wealth.
The boat was a Spanish boat sunk by that British full of wealth the Spaniards had plundered from the Inca.
Anyways now there are a bunch of legal battles happening over who has rights to the treasure. The Colombians say it's them; it's in their waters and they claim to have found it. A salvage company claims they found it in the 80's and made a deal then with the Colombians for 1/3 of it. And of course the Spanish are claiming it to be theirs, a hilarious claim considering it had only just been stolen month before during their genocide of the natives.
Anyways, treasure is cool.
