A British crew recovered £34 million worth of silver coins from a ship sunk in 1942
The SS City Cargo, a mixed passenger and cargo ship, was carrying around 100 tons of silver coins belonging to the UK Treasury when it was torpedoed by a German submarine in November 1942.

This month, a British-led salvage team announced that it had recovered several tons of the silver coins at a world record depth of 5,150 meters (16,896 feet).

The silver coins are worth an estimated £34 million ($50 million)
