There’s a new pirates movie this weekend! Whether your Pirates of the Caribbean fan or not, here’s some fascinating facts about pirate money that we bet you didn't learn from Johnny Depp…

Pirates actually very rarely buried their treasure.

This myth was popularized by fictional tales such as Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson and The Gold-Bug by Edgar Allan Poe, but in reality there are very few cases of pirates who buried their treasure.
