ORANJEMUND, NAMIBIA -- OCTOBER 05: Coins that archeologists presume to be pocket change for sailors on the Portuguese ship discovered on site October 05, 2008 in Oranjemund, Namibia. The wreck was discovered by miners in the Namdeb diamond mine off the coast of Namibia. The ship was found seven meters below sea level on April 1, 2008. Archeologists presume the wreck is from the early 1500s. Most of the the artifacts found are being stored in a storage shed at the Namdeb Diamond Mine. Items include: copper ingots, bronze canons, canon balls, pewter bowls and plates, ivory tusks from African elephants, and most substantial over 2000 gold coins- approximately 21 kg - the most gold found in Africa since the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.
