15 Missing Treasures That Could Make You Wealthy
All our lives we hear about lost or missing treasure and often, when sitting on a beach in the sun, we wonder if we may be sitting on the same sand that pirates once dug up to bury their ill-gotten treasures.
Pirates aren’t the only ones responsible for missing treasures and under sand is not the only place where treasures could be hidden. There are many varied stories of missing treasure and if you were to find just one, you could instantly become one of the wealthy.
Here are 15 such treasures that have not yet been found:
Ark of the Covenant
According to the bible, the Ark of the Covenant was built in a manner described to Moses by god and was intended to carry the tablets on which the commandments were written.
Although there are several mentions of it in the Bible, nothing has been written about it since, nor has it been seen.
Treasure of the Knights Templar
From the date of their founding till their demise in the 14th century, the Knights Templar were said to have amassed a huge treasure which some say, included the Ark of the Covenant.
It is believed that the few Templars that lived through the assassinations moved the treasure first to Scotland and then perhaps to Nova Scotia.
The Oak Island Money Pit
A mysterious pit found on Oak Island, off the coast of Canada, is said to have treasures of unknown riches in it.
Despite many people including a President of the United States, have tried in vain to find the treasure, it is still believed to be there. Could it be the missing treasure of the Templars?
The Amber Room
Consisting of a number of amber panels decorated with gold and mirrors, the amber room had been presented to Peter the Great of Russia and was known to exist until during WW11 when the Nazis moved it to Konigsberg Castle in Germany but nothing has been seen or heard of it since.
King John’s Lost Crown Jewels
The treasure belonging to King John of England, estimated to now be worth $70 million, has been missing since the king’s death in 1216.
