More than $68,000 in collectible coins and jewelry were stolen from a family's home sometime Thursday, police said.

A family member returned home at 2:15 p.m. Thursday and found the home in the 2600 block of 19th Street had been burglarized, according to a police report.

A fire safe containing many of the coins under the couple's bed had been opened, the report said.

The couple said the safe contained 14 rare silver coins from a shipwrecked Spanish boat.

In 1622, the Nuestra Señora de Atocha, a cargo ship from Spain, sunk off the coast of the Florida Keys. A hurricane tossed the ship in the coral reef, records show. The couple had obtained coins from the shipwreck, according to the report.
