Image 1 of 10


This gold spoon was recovered from the Spanish shipwreck Nuestra Senora de Atocha and is shown in Palm Beach, Fla., in 2005. The 17th-century sunken Spanish galleon sank off the Florida Keys in 1622 while carrying copper, silver, gold, tobacco, gems, jewels, jewelry, and indigo from Spanish ports at Cartagena, Colombia, Porto Bello in New Granada, and Havana, bound for Spain.
