Added DiffLines:

** Inverted in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales''; Pirate "Commodore" Barbosa's Flag Ship, ''The Queen Anne's Revenge'', is decked out (pun intended) from stem to stern with gold decorations, including a live string quartet. Justified, since he commands an enchanted vessel and many other, smaller ones which do most of the active pirating.

* In the Literature/LordPeterWimsey story "The Learned Adventure of the Dragon's Head", Lord Peter and his nephew track down the treasure of "Cut-Throat" Conyers, who was widely believed to have been a pirate and sailed with Blackbeard. Conyers hid the treasure many years after he'd retired from piracy and settled down as a country landowner.

* ''TheDeep'' by Creator/PeterBenchley (made into a film in 1977) has divers discovering a WW2 ship containing a cargo of morphine, which has sunk on top of a Spanish treasure ship that went down in the 18th century holding a priceless royal dowry. When a local drug kingpin takes an interest, the protagonists have to buy him off by salvaging the morphine while concealing what their real area of interest is.

* ''{{ComicBook/Hitman}}'' had an arc centered on finding a coffin full of wealth in an unmarked grave in a huge cemetary. [[spoiler: Subverted rather cruelly when it turns out the dollar bills didn't survive, leaving only a green-tinted pile of papery mush in the coffin.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Subverted in the case of the notorious Freeboota (ork SpacePirate) Kaptin Badrukk, who is said to have buried vast amounts of wealth on remote asteroids. Subverted because orks use their own teeth as currency (they grow back), which end up desintegrating over time to prevent inflation, making them useless to humans ''and'' orks alike.
