The wreck was actually found back in 1981 by an American salvage company... but then lawyers got involved and it was not until 2011 the court ruled in Columbia's favor.. So much for finders keepers, No?

Colombia claims to have discovered what’s been described as the ‘holy grail’ of shipwrecks of the coast of Cartagena.

The San Jose is documented has having been carrying one of the richest cargoes of treasure ever to have been lost at sea

It was sunk by a British warship in 1708 on its way from South America to Spain, ruled by King Philip V at the time. 600 lives were lost.

The treasure that went down with it is estimated to be worth between around three-and-a-half to fifteen-and-a-half billion euros.
