H.M.S. SUSSEX COIN ESTIMATES

  Bob Lyall writes: "Headlines in British "quality" newspapers
  suggested there were 1,000,000 coins on the wreck of HMS
  Sussex, wrecked off Gibraltar, and the value of  the find
  would be 2,900,000,000 (yes, 2.9 billion or $4 billion).
  Now it doesn't take a great brain to work out the average
  coin "value" is suggested at 2,900 ($4,000) which just goes
  to show how ridiculous the reporting of this wreck has been
  so far!"
