Deep sea diver Eric Schmitt was diving off the Florida coast when he discovered the sparkly treasure from a 1715 Spanish shipwreck.

He literally couldn’t contain his excitement while rummaging through the sea sand to find gold coins and gold chains ... worth over $1 mil.

Maybe it’s not such a crazy idea to walk up and down the beach with a metal detector after all.

Check out the video of this underwater discovery that’s as good as winning the lottery … and more exciting.
