Treasure Blog: SS New York, 1846

The SS New York sank in 1846 with a cargo of gold coins from the Charlotte, North Carolina and Dahlonega, Georgia mints.

They're saying that the coins, recovered last year, could fetch up to $100,000 apiece due to rarity and condition.

The site of the old US Mint here in Charlotte is now an art museum.
