Most amateur and even professional treasure hunters today don’t really expect to find anything of serious value. May be some silver or perhaps if they’re really lucky even gold coins from back in the day when America used precious metals as currency. But one Florida treasure hunter literally hit the jackpot! 

Eric Schmitt was diving off the Florida coast when he noticed a gold coin. He literally cheered in delight, but that was just the beginning. In total, he found 51 gold coins and 40 gold chains worth over one million dollars!
