Mikey finds the framed map and hands it to Chunk, knowing that his clumsy friend will eventually break the frame like he does with most things he touches. Once freed from the frame the rest of the Goonies take a look at it as well. The written text on the map is in Spanish, which Mouth is able to translate. With the map was a doubloon dated 1632.
The Goonies take the map with them on their adventure to find One-Eyed Willy's "rich stuff". The doubloon points them to the starting position of the map and thus the entrance to the secret tunnels near the lighthouse. On the back of the map are musical notes that act as a key to the musical lock, which Andy is able to read. By following the map the Goonies find the Inferno and the treasure.
- In a deleted scene, Troy grabs the map, rolls it, and lights up the end like a cigarette. Supposedly if you look closely you can see the edge of the map is charred in later scenes.
