The cargo of rare and unique coins were never salvaged by East India Trading Company.
In 1976, East India Trading Company tokens appeared in sand dredged from the Goodwins for use as fill for construction work in Dover Harbor. The site and her cargo of tokens was eventually located in 1983 by divers investigating a fisherman’s snag. The site was then subject to a number of parties claiming interest as it was thought to be the 'Britannia', lost at the same time but carrying silver Company tokens.
A salvage agreement was reached and operations began in 1984 and many of the shipwreck coins were recovered.
The area of exposed wreckage covers an area of approximately 15m x 20m and has been observed to stand one meter below the current seabed level. A search located another area away of the main mound where two guns and an anchor were exposed.
A fascinating appeal of this shipwreck is that it is an East India Trading Company vessel. The Dutch East India Company was made famous by the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
