A treasure hunting Florida family hit the jackpot while diving near a Spanish shipwreck this Labor Day weekend.
Their treasure included nearly $300,000 worth of centuries-old gold: 70 to 80 feet of gold chains and four coins that date back to the 1700's from Peru.
The gold will be divided with their contractor and 20 percent will be given to the state to be put on display.

This is likely the president's last chance for a face to face meeting with lawmakers until this weekend, as he is headed to Sweden and then Russia for the G-20 summit.
