1. The Forrest Fenn Hidden Treasure:
Fenn was a pilot in the Air Force in the 60s. He was believed to fly to Pompeii quite regularly in search of artifacts, which he found plenty! After he was diagnosed with cancer in the 80s, he decided to hide his treasure - jewelerry, gold, and other valuable artifacts worth $1-3 million and gave everyone clues about where it is.
2. The Golden Owl
Hidden somewhere in France, the Golden Owl is worth 1 million Francs. A person who went by the pseudonynm "Max Valentin" was obsessed with making every French man a professional treasure hunter and therefore decided to hide the golden owl in the French countryside somewhere. He gave out 11 clues and no one has been able to find it, however one person has been very close so you can hope before trying that it isn't already claimed or lost!
3. The Hidden $63 million in Bedford County
Thomas Beale and his colleague accidentally discovered wealth while mining somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. He wanted his kids and his colleague's kids to work hard for this wealth and hence he formed 3 ciphers - one with the name of Thomas and his colleague's kids, one that determined the exact location and one with the exact description of what was contained. The men entrusted an Innkeeper called Robert Morriss. Morriss was supposed to wait for 10 years before opening it. At this point, if Beale did not return for the box, a key to the cipher was supposed to be mailed to Morriss. But it never arrived. So basically, silver and gold worth $63 Million is hidden somewhere in Bedford and no one has been able to find it.
4. Leon Trabuco's Gold
During the time of the Great Depression, Trabuco and his business partners burried 16 tonnes of gold as they anticipated the price of gold to exponentially grow post the depression. However, unfortunately for them, they held on to the treasure a bit too long. After the private possession of gold was made illegal, him and his business partners were found dead. The gold is still untouched though.
5. The $200 million of the coast in Key West
Back in 1622, numerous Cargo ships were perished as they were caught up by a hurricane, but these weren't any ordinary Cargo ships. They were transferring $700 million worth of gold and silver. In 1985, treasure hunter Mel Fisher found $500 million of the buried treasure less than 160 kilometers off the coast of Key West. Experts believe there is still plenty of treasure to find.
