Treasure Auction

Savvy auction bidders seek items representing superlatives in quality, rarity and provenance.

This summer collectors will have an opportunity to purchase rare precious items from the personal collection of an iconic treasure hunter.


On August 5, the unique boutique New York auction house, Guernsey’s will present items found by the most famous treasure hunter, Mel Fisher. The auction will mark the 30 anniversary of Fisher’s discovery of the hurricane-sunken Spanish Galleon, the Atocha and its $450 Million treasure.


Items to be auctioned will come from Fisher’s own collection and include gold and silver pieces from the Atocha as well as other long-lost galleons he located.


If you are interested in collecting unique, high-value historical treasure with strong provenance, you should probably put the Guernsey auction on your list. For information see
