- “ Now let's count our gold doubloons and put 'em in our team treasure chest.”
Sometime before the events of the series Jake and his crew acquired the Team Treasure Chest to store every gold doubloon they've found in their adventure. The origin of the chest has yet to be revealed.
As revealed in the episode "Treasure Chest Switcheroo" when Captain Hook and his crew steal the Team Treasure Chest. Hook tries various means to force the chest to open but all fail.
