Gold from the time of the Gold Rush
One of the biggest shipping accidents was the sinking of Central America on 12 September 1857. The three-masted passenger paddle steamer was on the Panama-Havana-New York route. With several tons of gold, the ship sank in a hurricane just before it reached New York. On board were extremely rare gold coins.
The salvage began in 1988 and over the years millions of coins and gold bars were saved. The salvage work continues today. Nine silver quarter dollars have recently been identified. Since they were in a safe, they are still in very good condition. So far only 38 copies of this type of coins are known.
The rare coins from Central America will be auctioned in mid-February. One of the gold bars from the wreck was sold for eight million US dollars in 2001 and weighed 80 pounds.
Also, historical gold coins can be worthwhile as an investment. Especially who is interested in the stories behind it. However, special knowledge is required in this area. Because there is a danger of investing your money in counterfeits.
It seems easier and more sensible to look around than investors at the gold companies, here the transparency is greater. The location of the projects, management, finances and annual reports can be viewed by investors. In this context, it is worth taking a look at solid companies such as Maple Gold Mines or Ximen Mining.
