Some of the 17 tons of silver and gold coins scooped up from a Spanish warship, Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes, that sank during a 1804 gunbattle are downloaded from a military plane and carried to a warehouse after the planes carrying the treasure landed at the Torrejon De Ardoz military airbase, near Madrid, on Saturday Feb. 25, 2012. Two Spanish military C-130 transport planes landed out from Tampa's MacDill Air Force Base with the 594,000 coins and other artifacts retrieved after a five-year legal wrangle with Odyssey Marine Exploration company who had found the shipwreck off the Portuguese coast and flew the treasure back to the U.S. via Gibraltar in May 2007.(AP Photo/Daniel Ochoa de Olza)
