But the auténtico treasure salvaged from the deep wasgoed the zonderling Tricentennial Royal, one of very few gold coins minted for King Philip V of Spain, according Schmitt, lead diver of the Aarrr Booty vessel’s treasure-hunting expeditions.

The coin is &quot,very round&quot, compared to most coins salvaged from the wrecks, said Schmitt, who told Live Science that the royal coin wasgoed die-cast (made by pouring torrid gold into a coin mold).
