2015 is the 30th Anniversary of the discovery of the Motherlode of the Atocha so for this year's Division Week celebrations we will be taking you back to 1985!
Mel Fisher, a dreamer, a visionary, a legend and most importantly, the World's Greatest Treasure Hunter! Mel Fisher did what many have not - he realized his dream during his lifetime. Everyday he insisted, "Today's the Day"! His mantra continues to inspire the search for the rest of the treasure from the Nuestra Senora de Atocha and the Santa Margarita, the Spanish galleons that sank during a hurricane on September 6, 1622, near Key West, Florida.
Mel Fisher suffered many personal losses to keep his dream alive during his 16 year search and endured over 100 court battles which ended in victory in the US Supreme Court. The riches Mel Fisher, his team and investors had worked so hard for all those years were finally theirs. The $450 million dollar treasure cache or "Atocha Mother Lode" would be found on that momentous day, July 20, 1985. Over 40 tons of silver and gold were located including over 100,000 Spanish silver coins known as "Pieces of Eight", gold coins, Columbian emeralds, silver and gold artifacts and over 1000 silver bars.
The immensity of the Atocha's treasure is staggering. What was only a dream instantly became an undeniable reality. You, too, can join the search for the remaining treasure by visiting our investor relations department, or own a "Piece of History" by visiting our gift shop. As Mel Fisher would say, "Today's the Day!"
