Sailing with the equatorial Trade Winds, the trader rounded the southern tip of India and pointed her bow at Ceylon (Sri Lanka), a tiny island dangling off the southern tip of the Indian continent. After taking anchor at Galle Harbor, Ceylon, while rounding the southern tip of Sri Lanka, the trader, possibly caught in a typhoon, met her fate on Great Basses Reef. There is no record of survivors . . .
In 1961, the remains of the shipwreck was discovered, and in 1963, Sir Arthur C. Clarke, and his dive associates recovered the treasure on the treacherous Great Basses Reef. Buried among the debris were concreted masses of silver rupees. Flowing across the obverse, just below the date, is the poetic couplet “Shah Aurangzeb Alamgir, the ruler, throne adorner, world grasper, struck coin in the world like the shining full Moon.”
