Odyssey recovers silver, gold coins and more at SS Central America shipwreck site
by Jo-Lynn Brown - Digital Producer- Tampa Bay Business Journal | July 18, 2014

Odyssey Marine Exploration Inc. has recovered more than 13,500 silver and gold coins, and gold ingots, or oblong blocks, from the SS Central America.

The Central American ship was a California Gold Rush ship that was caught in a hurricane in 1857 and sank 160 miles off the coast of South Carolina, according to a statement.

Odyssey has been working since April under contract to Ira Owen Kane, the receiver for Recovery Limited Partnership, the court-appointed salvor-in-possession of the SS Central America shipwreck, the statement said.
