The SS Republic was a side-wheel steamship that sank in the Atlantic Ocean while carrying a large cargo of silver and gold coins and a stunning variety of everyday supplies essential to life in mid-19th century America. En route from New York to New Orleans with passengers and commercial cargo, the SS Republic was lost in a violent hurricane on October 25th, 1865. Nearly 140 years later, Odyssey discovered the shipwreck of the SS Republic approximately 100 miles off the coast of Georgia. The archaeological excavation conducted during 2003/04 was accomplished entirely through the use of advanced robotics and cutting-edge technologies and was the first of its kind ever performed at such depths. Over 51’000 U. Gold and silver coins were recovered from the Republic wreck site, as well as over 14’000 artifacts. Our shippment is insured, inkl.
