"20,000 leagues" is actually a horizontal distance, not a depth! See the following quotation from Wikipedia:

"The title refers to the distance traveled while under the sea and not to a depth, as 20,000 leagues is 2.7 times the circumference of Earth. The greatest depth mentioned in the book is four leagues."

20.000 coins ? probably it is much more, there are 20.000 types listed.
And many types are combined to 1 coins, while KM lists them as seperate.

The next 10.000 will be easy, after that it will be hard ........
