    A treasure trove of gold and silver coins, recovered from the wreckage of a sunken Spanish ship, has left America for Spain.

    The haul, worth more than 370 million euros, was uncovered off the coast of Portugal by an American salvage company.

    The treasure is believed to be from a ship sunk by the British Navy in 1804 as it returned from South America.
