Mel Fisher, a dreamer, a visionary, a legend and most importantly, the Worlds Greatest Treasure Hunter!
Mel Fisher did what many have not - he realized his dream during his lifetime. Everyday he insisted,
Todays 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 Atochas 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, Todays the Day!
