Divers from the 99 Crew Dive Team were helping to clean up the waters surrounding the harbourfront in Wellington, New Zealand. While routinely removing all sorts of scrap metal and rubbish, they came across a find that every diver dreams of. A veritable treasure trove of gold coins.

According to Rob Willson, responsible for organising the dive, the find consists of 868 gold coins, some of which are most likely of considerable value. Unfortunately no information was given about the specific value of the find.

Local media report that in addition to the golden treasure, divers unearthed 577 metal cans, 116 glass bottles, various metal items, clothes, credit cards, fragments of a cow skeleton, cosmetics and… a bongo.

99 Crew Dive Team regularly take part in cleaning up local bodies of water in an effort to help keep them in good condition.

As to the further fate of the coins, in the comments under the information about the find on the website stuff.co.nz, one of the participants of the dive probably commented. According to him, all valuable objects will be sold to cover the costs of the clean-up and other similar undertakings, which the divers have so far paid for out of their own pockets.
