ORANJEMUND, NAMIBIA -- OCTOBER 04: Coins that archeologists presume to be pocket change for sailors on the Portuguese ship discovered on site October 04, 2008 in Oranjemund, Namibia. The wreck was discovered seven meters below sea level on April 1, 2008 by miners in the Namdeb diamond mine off the coast of Namibia. Archeologists established that the wreck is from the early 1500s. Items found at the site include: copper ingots, bronze canons, canon balls, pewter bowls and plates and ivory tusks from African elephants. The most substantial find was over 2000 gold coins -approximately 21 kg-the most gold found in Africa since the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.
