THE OFFICIAL MEL FISHER ONLINE TREASURE STORE
Mel Fisher, a dreamer, a visionary, a legend and most importantly, the World's Greatest Treasure Hunter! Mel Fisher did what many have not - he realized his dream during his lifetime. Everyday he insisted, "Today's the Day"! His mantra continues to inspire the search for the remaining 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.
It took years, cost lives, and challenged all who served as members of Mel's loyal crew. On July 20, 1985, after more than 15 years, Mel's dream was achieved, and the Atocha's motherlode was located. Thousands of artifacts, silver coins, gold coins, many in near mint condition, period and earlier amazing Spanish objects and wares, exquisite jewelry set with precious stones, gold chains, a variety of armaments and even seeds (which later sprouted!) was recovered.
The immensity of the Atocha's 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 member relations department, or "Own a Piece of History" by visiting our gift shops or shopping online. As Mel Fisher would say, "Today's the Day!" Visit our Treasure Blog for fascinating Mel Fisher treasure stories
