America’s Greatest Treasure Ship: The SS Central America - The Second Treasure Finding Journey

 David Bowers with Dwight N. Manley Foreword by Bob Evans

New Secrets of the SS Central America Revealed 

Previously undisclosed information about fabulous Gold Rush sunken treasure of the fabled “Ship of Gold”

Never before revealed information about the greatest American treasure ever found, the tons of California Gold Rush-era coins, ingots and gold dust recovered from the 1857 sinking of the S.S. Central America, the fabled “Ship of Gold,” are revealed in an exciting new reference book written by acclaimed, award-winning rare coins researcher and writer Q. David Bowers with well-known numismatist Dwight Manley. 

The new book, “America’s Greatest Treasure Ship: the S.S. Central America – the Second Treasure-Finding Journey,” publicly presents for the first time a useful and intriguing complete inventory of the more than 15,000 U.S. and world coins and 45 historic assayers’ ingots retrieved from the Atlantic Ocean during the last recovery expedition to the legendary ship in 2014. Many of these coins are among the finest known of their kind. 

After sitting untouched on the ocean floor for more than a century, the treasure created a sensation when it was first discovered over 30 years ago. The amazing, initial 1980s recoveries from the S.S. Central America were described by LIFE magazine as “The Greatest Treasure Ever Found,” and the sale of the vast majority of that retrieved treasure still stands as the world’s most valuable numismatic transaction.
