Long Beach Expo Featured Rare Gold & Silver Coins from S.S. Central America Shipwreck

On Thursday, Feb. 22 until Saturday, Feb. 24. the Long Beach Convention Center exhibited roughly $40 million in gold treasure! These extraordinary coins were recovered from the S.S. Central America, which sank in 1857 about 160 miles off South Carolina.

Here is a video from Coin Week about the display that was brought to Long Beach by Dwight Manley who acquired rights to salvage the wreck in 2014. " This is the first in a multi-year series of displays from the collection showcasing more than 500 superbly preserved examples of portrait coins minted in the Thames Valley over the last 1,400 years, including a complete King Edward VIII pattern proof set produced in 1937 by the Royal Mint—the only known set in private hands."
