If early man has taught us one thing, it’s that treasures are to be valued, collected and protected. People like pirates have been hunting what they thought to be some of the most valuable treasures in the world like El Dorado and the Fountain of Youth. Whether or not these things and places were real, they gave way to some of the greatest stories, and now movies, in the world. Although the hunt for these things has heavily diminished over the years, there are still modern-day treasure hunters in existence. But what if you were one of these pirates or treasure hunters, just which treasure would you find?
Are you the one who will uproot Genghis Khan's gold? It is supposedly in his tomb, but no one has been able to find the tomb for hundreds of years. Can you?

Cooper's Cache -- will you get the remainder of the $200,000 that was never found? Or, maybe you'll be the one to get the Confederate Gold. Do you already have plans for what you'll do with all your loot?
