Lost Gold of the Republic

Lisa Ling dives more than 1,600 feet to the bottom of the Atlantic aboard a high-tech submersible, investigating the 138-year-old wreck of the S.S. Republic, a Civil War-era steamship that sank carrying a fortune in gold and silver coins. Jason Williams, Executive Producer and President of JWM, was on board with Odyssey Marine Exploration, the company searching for the Republic, even before they first spotted the wreck. Our cameras were on hand to capture the moment the first gold coin was discovered - and $75,000,000 more.
