    Get Spanish gold and silver on a NJ beach

    In the spirit of helping others make their find of a lifetime I have researched some information and confirmed a great location for finding Spanish 8 reales and Spanish gold coins from a shipwreck that went down in 1781 in southern New Jersey. All the coins that have been found to date at this location are from 1781 and earlier

    My detecting buddy was on the site and was shown a number of the 8 reales and gold coins found by someone who frequently detects there himself. There are about 50 guys that detect here that keep this location close to the vest from everyone else well that is about to change right now. EVERYONE should have the opportunity to detect there and maybe make their find of a lifetime. The area is known as Strathmere Beach - Roosevelt Blvd off the Garden State Hwy then head south.

    Apparently, there were HUNDREDS of these reales/doubloons found over the last few years on the shore (not in the surf) after a dredging operation dumped sand from Corson Inlet onto the beach. Once the finds were discovered by the local authorities, they now have included an archeologist on the dredging ship and now use a screen at the intake area to catch any coins that might get sucked up.

    My research indicates that the ship that went down is The Fame which was an American privateer. In 1781 she was sailing off the coast of New Jersey.
    According to Walter and Richard Krottee's book Shipwrecks Off the New Jersey Coast: "She had captured a number of heavily laden prizes just before she Foundered" on February 22, 1781. The Fame went down north of Peck's Beach. The location of this wreck is unknown but she is believed to be a treasure site."

    However based on the dredging and dump site where the artifacts were found we can now determine that The Fame actually went down much further south than Pecks Beach (which is now known as Ocean City, NJ) at Corson Inlet at the Strathmere Bay area on the ocean.

    You can be sure that I will be there next big storm - hurricane or noreaster - looking for my gold doubloon or piece of eight. See you all there if you're 6 hours away its worth the trip

    Email me for more exact location on the beach in the dunes where coins were found

    Good hunting,

    Don

    Unhappy

    Man, you should call yourself "Don pisses people off".
    I can't understand why some people feel it is the "duty"
    to give away information that may have taken others a very long time
    to aquire.
    I agree with Neil's sentiment, not necessarily in his words.
    You should be ashamed to call yourself a treasure hunter.
    There's no need to give away information to those that
    don't do their own research.
    Glad you don't have the code to the nuclear weapons.

    Totally disagree, this is not a specific secret cache hunt or anything, just a stretch of public beach. Nice to see people spread it around. This is a hobby for anyone willing to put in the time and effort, although I would caution - southern Jersey beaches are filthy. That needle in a haystack may end up in your foot if you're not careful.

    So let me get this straight... You are a new member who just decided to take it upon himself to "spread the word" about a location that I am sure many people hold near and dear to them.

    While I understand what your intentions were, it was wrong of you to "play the role of God" and decide to ruin this location for everyone who was already happilly hunting there.

    You very well may have just increased the amount of people that hunt an already well-known treasure beach by the dozens.

    This state is small enough as it is, has too many people crammed into it, and is being overdeveloped rapidly. Let others do their own research and put in some actual effort. People do not need to be spoon fed information or resources. There is enough out there for everyone but ruining a well-known spot for the people who already hunt there is wrong and violates our code of ethics.

    I agree with Jeff, it does not break any of our rules, it is a public beach and has been reported in the past, if it was private property it would be different but its not. It is like someone complaining about a post about the treasure coast and 1715 fleet.
