Gold from a ship - level 2
Members of a family from Florida were happy but also shocked after they found some treasure.
It was a dream of every pirate, but it is reality for them. The family found gold coins and chains in 11 ships. The ships went down in a hurricane in 1715 and the gold stayed at the bottom of the sea until now.
The treasure, which is worth $300,000, is not staying in the family's hands completely. The State of Florida can take 20% of it and put it in museums.
Difficult words: treasure (group of things like gold, silver etc.), coin (round flat metal used as money), chain (long line from connected circles of metal).
