£60 - £90

A fine silver ingot made from silver recovered from the wreck of the SS Gairsoppa, 10oz, with later stamps JZ0422, HM Mint Bombay and others, issued in 2015, 68x34x14mm, with a London Mint Office certificate of authenticity, in a modern fitted case

The SS Gairsoppa was a British merchantman torpedoed 300 miles southwest of Ireland in 1941. After an epic voyage of two weeks in a lifeboat, only three of her crew made landfall in Cornwall and only one member, Richard Ayres, reached the shore alive. Her large silver cargo was salvaged in 2013.
