USA (New Orleans mint), half dollar seated Liberty, 1861-O, Louisiana issue, encapsulated NGC SS Republic Shipwreck Effect.The SS Republic began its life as the merchant ship SS Tennessee, launched in 1853. When the Civil War began on April 12, 1861, she was tied up in the New Orleans harbor. She was then pressed into service as a Confederate blockade runner named the CSS Tennessee but never escaped the harbor. After the war, she was sold and renamed the SS Republic. On her final voyage in October of 1865, she was carrying passengers and cargo including $400,000 in silver and gold coins. She got caught in a strong hurricane and sank on Oct. 25, 1865 off the coast of Georgia. In 2003, the wreck was located and a large amount of rare U.S. gold and silver coins were recovered.

"Manila Bay treasure," dumped off the Philippines in 1942  

 

During World War II, US-administration Philippine coinage held by the Philippine Treasury was dumped in Manila Bay by the U.S. Navy on the eve of Japanese occupation. After the invasion, the Japanese forced Filipino divers and then, after some of the Filipinos died, U.S. Navy divers (prisoners of war) to recover the coins, from a depth of 120 feet. The divers hid many of the coins they recovered and smuggled them back into the Philippine economy, effectively undermining the Japanese paper currency. Just as the Japanese figured out what was happening, a typhoon came through and ended the salvage operation. Further salvage efforts by the U.S. Navy and private interests after the war resulted in the recovery of millions of the coins, but more than half remain there to this day.

SS John Barry, sunk in 1944 off the Straits of Oman  

 

A fascinating piece of World War II history, these coins were part of a special, secret wartime cargo of 3 million silver coins sent to fund American oil interests in Saudi Arabia. They were struck at the Philadelphia Mint and then shipped aboard the American Liberty ship SS John Barry when it was torpedoed by U-859 on August 28, 1944 off the Straits of Oman. In 1994, around half of the coins were salvaged using modern technology from the staggering depth of 8,500 feet.

Shipwreck Paper Money: SS Andrea Doria, sunk in 1956 off Nantucket 

 

The SS Andrea Doria was an Italian luxury liner operated by the Italian Line from 1953 to 1956. During her three years of service, she had many transatlantic voyages and became popular with passengers for her luxury accommodations and quick speed. On the night of July 25, 1956, the Andrea Doria collided with the MS Stockholm, a Swedish American Line passenger liner, while travelling through heavy fog. The Stockholm's bow penetrated the Andrea Doria's starboard side, leaving a gaping hole. However, safety measures kept the Andrea Doria afloat for 11 hours, long enough for the survivors to evacuate. All together, 46 people died aboard the Andrea Doria while 6 crew members of the Stockholm were killed.
...

 

Please note there is an shipping and insurance charge of $17 on any Andrea Doria notes. (Note these pieces are also listed under Paper Money Category)
