"The Gold-Bug" is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, set on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina involving deciphering a secret message and finding buried treasure. The story was first published in the Philadelphia Dollar Newspaper in June 1843 after Poe had won a competition held by the paper, receiving a prize of US$100.
