With Fisher tag and certificate #4383. From the same hurricane-stricken 1622 Fleet as the Atocha, the Santa Margarita sank on a reef within sight of the Atocha and was found in 1626 byish salvagers, who recovered only roughly half its treasure. The other half was found by Mel Fisher and company in 1980.Margaritas treasures were similar to those found on the Atocha, with fewer coins in comparatively worse condition overall (yet not as harshly cleaned afterward). As with Atocha coins, original Fisher certificates are critical to the premium value for these coins, which is on par with Atocha coins. In 2008, divers with the subcontractor company Blue Water Recovery found more gold on the Santa Margarita and also a lead box stuffed full of pearls.
