On October 20, 1783, it was sent by Charles III of Spain on a mission to bring much-needed hard currency to the Spanish colony of Louisiana.On January 11, 1784, it sailed for New Orleans and was never heard from again. Then, on August 2, 1993, the trawler Mistake, while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico fifty miles south of New Orleans, hung its net on a snag. The trawler was captained by Jerry Murphy and its home port was Pascagoula, Mississippi.
When the crew hoisted the net and dumped the contents on the deck, they found the net was filled with silver coins. The coins bore markings from the Spanish mint in Mexico, along with the date 1783.
