According to Celebrity Net Worth, Rick Lagina’s current net worth is estimated to be around $10 million — an estimate also reported by Wealthy Gorilla. While we don’t doubt that Lagina would love to finally get his hands on the treasure he’s devoted his life to uncovering, it’s clear that the search itself has been incredibly profitable for him. The site clarifies that Lagina worked for the U.S. Postal Service prior to his time on “The Curse of Oak Island,” and indicates that most of the money has come primarily from his nine seasons on television. Along with his brother Marty, Lagina also owns a controlling interest in the Oak Island Tours company, which owns the majority of the Oak Island location and runs tours there periodically.
Though Lagina has done remarkably well for himself despite never actually finding the mythical treasure of Oak Island, both he and Marty assert their search isn’t actually about the money at all. As fans know well by now, the real reason both brothers are so obsessed with the island is simply that they want to find the truth of what is really hidden there. In essence, it’s more about solving the island’s mystery than it is about getting rich, which is perhaps why they’ve managed to stay motivated for so long despite never finding the island’s hidden treasure.
