Expedition: Operation Trinidad - recovery of rare pre-civil war gold coins which sank on an iron hulled vessel

Currently active and ongoing expedition for recovery of Sunken Treasure

This expedition is an ongoing quest and currently active expedition to recover an extremely valuable

 cargo of rare US pre-civil war gold coins. The vessel sank in the early 1800's and this vessel was an iron hulled vessel. This vessel sank in the Atlantic Ocean in international waters.

This expedition is the search and recovery of the Gold on a 19th Century steamship that was lost while carrying a large quantity of American gold coins. This vessel has been given the code name "Trinidad" to preserve non-disclosure of sensitive and proprietary information. The resting place of the "Trinidad" is in international waters, and the present day monetary value of the American gold coins is conservatively estimated to be over 200 million.

The research and documentation for this project was compiled by the top researchers and archival documentation specialist in the nation. The research and documentation consists of hundreds of pages of primary source material and fist hand witnesses.

The "Trinidad" sailed from the U.S. for Europe with a shipment of American gold coins and a large number of wealthy first class passengers. Soon after its departure the "Trinidad" collided with another vessel, which continued on its way oblivious to the damage it had caused. After the collision the "Trinidad" maintained course but the impact had broken away iron plates from around the coal bunkers. This allowed water to pour in with such force that the furnaces were extinguished.

Some of the outstanding merits of this project are:

  • Relatively unreported by secondary sources, not a "known" wreck.
  • Documented cargo of American Gold Coins, Pre Civil War.
  • Wealthy First Class Passengers carrying American Gold Coins and Jewelry.
  • Vessel sank intact in deep water unreachable till now with the use of mixed gas technical diving or commercial saturation diving.
  • Wreck site is in international waters, within 100-120 Nautical Miles of closest major U.S. port.
  • Research and re-navigation analysis completed, project ready to go.
  • Individual gold coins probably have greater average value than those recovered from the SS Central America and the SS Republic.
  • Potential claims by insurance companies probably not a factor.
  • Conservative estimated present day value of Gold Coins over 200 million.

Since this is an ongoing project dealing with confidential and proprietary information regarding the location of an extremely valuable cargo of gold coins and rare and valuable early American coins we cannot provide further information till the completion of the expedition and the recovery of the valuable cargo of gold and rare early American coins.
