My husband & I lucked out by stopping in Key West Treasure Chest! We were limited on time in Key West since we were on a cruise. My husband loves shipwreck history & we got to meet and talk with one of the owners. She was so interesting to talk with plus she wasn't at all pushy with sales. We... More

We were cheated. My wife really wanted a coin from the Atocha find by Mel Fisher. This shop is supposedly owned by his attorney. We bought a grade 2, 4 reale coin from the Potosi mint, with a mount for $4,626.00, only to be told by the people at the Mel Fisher Museum that we overpaid by almost $2000. WE... More

Steven A, Owner at Key West Treasure Chest, responded to this review

I read your review and I sell artifacts that come from lots of wrecks ,land finds,private collections. All cob coins from the Atocha were clipped by hand and struck between dies by hand. This process made all of the coins unique. Every coin has different details because of the minting process and salt water corrosion after being in the ocean... More

I had been meaning to stop here many times on our trips to Key West and finally made it a point to do so. I'm really glad I did! It was fun meeting and speaking with Sherry, the store manager. If you are a diver, it is so interesting talking to her about her experiences working with Mel Fisher and... More

This is a one of a kind boutique that has tons of very interesting items from Key West ship wrecks. We were lucky enough to meet the owner who was one of the divers on the wreck. She educated us about the origin of the different coins and ships as well as their roles in American History. She helped us... More

Key West is the best place to find shipwreck treasure coins and jewelery. From local shipwrecks like the Atocha and San Miguel, to distant artifacts like widow's mites from Israel, it is almost like taking a trip through time browsing their antiquities at the Key West Treasure Chest. As a local in Key West, I did my homework before I... More

If you're looking for a souvenir that truly opitimizes the adventure of the Key's shipwreck history and don't mind something that is a bit on the pricey side, you have to check out the Treasure Chest. This shop is full of all sorts of treasure that has been recovered from a variety of old, and often historically significant, ships that... More
