A Royal Fleet Bounty: Take 10% off any cannon
On December 1654, the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas waited in Cartagena, Colombia, for a cargo of silver. But, the supply vessel, Jesus Maria de la Limpia Concepción, sank off Ecuador in October, unbeknownst to the Maravillas' crew.
The Concepción's silver was transferred to the Maravillas, along with the galleon's own fresh load of silver coins and bars, the Lady of Wonders set sail for Spain. However, on January 4, 1656, while passing through the Bahama Channel, the galleon lost its way.
As part of the Tierra Firme fleet, the Maravillas, serving as the vice-flagship, collided with its flagship, ultimately sinking due to the weight of its double cargo - a tragic end for a ship carrying treasures.
