Silver coins, worked gold and hundreds of artifacts valued at $500 million were recently discovered at the scene of the Black Swan shipwreck. Experts say that this very well may be the richest shipwreck treasure ever. 17 tons of treasure have been collected and are being transported home to the United States.

Implications - The wreck was discovered at an as-of-yet undisclosed location in the Atlantic Ocean, but the blogosphere is already abuzz with speculation and intense excitement. 17 tons is certainly no small amount of treasure to uncover, so it will be really exciting to learn which lucky museum gets the honor of displaying the opulent wealth in all its glory.
