    A treasure-hunting family from Florida literally struck gold off the coast of Fort Pierce.

    Rick Schmitt, his wife Lisa and their grown children Hillary and Eric uncovered a 300-year-old treasure of gold coins, gold chains and a gold ring valued at $300,000 only 150 yards offshore.

    "This is like the end of a dream," Rick Schmitt said.

    The treasure reportedly comes from the wreckage of a convoy of 11 ships that were destroyed in a hurricane off the coast of Florida in 1715 while they were traveling from Havana to Spain.

    According to the Sun Sentinel, more than 1,000 people died during the wreckage and mounds of gold, silver and other valuable artifacts were spilled across the ocean floor.

    There's really not all that much difference between your guess and what the Spanish did to get it originally, 300 years ago.
