More than 5,000 artifacts salvaged from the Titanic are to be sold in a single lot at auction in New York on April 15, 2012 ― 100 years after the luxury liner sank in the Atlantic.

No reserve price has been set, but the Premier Exhibitions Inc., which owns sole salvage rights to the Titanic through its RMS Titanic unit, said the artifacts have an estimated value of $189 million.

It will take place April 15, the 100th anniversary of the day the White Star liner sank on its maiden voyage to New York from Southampton, England.

A new 3D version of director James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster “Titanic” is to open in Canadian and US theaters on April 6.
