Since ancient times man has succumbed to the power of gold. From the time of ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to more modern times, man has had an affinity for gold. Pirates and plunderers went to lands far away to acquire a potential stock pile of treasure. One such story was the treasure of Captain Kidd found by several men.
To bring back some of their story of old, here's an excerpt from when they found the treasure, which belonged to Captain Kidd; "There were two-and-twenty bags in all in the chest: ten of them full of silver money, eight of them full of gold money, three of them full of gold-dust, and one small bag with jewels wrapped up in wad cotton and paper. "'Tis enough," cried out Parson Jones, "to make us both rich men as long as we live."
Rich men indeed were the ones who acquired gold coins, both then and now. In all ages, man has been fascinated with the beauty and magic of gold, and with its power to change lives. While you may not be able to locate a wrecked ship with sunken treasure, you would still be fascinated with collecting gold coins, but it's just not the same as sunken treasure. Arrr!
