For more FAMILY FUN, you'll need MORE THAN ONE

GO-FIND 40

minelab all new go-find detector -family fun.jpg

The new GO-FIND metal detector is so simple a 5 year old can understand how to use it.  Yet the performance driven features will have adults fighting for their turn.

Coin and relic hunters will marvel at the sensitivity of the compact fold-up GO-FIND.  The GO-FIND will be an enormous hit with competition coin hunters, who demand fast processor speeds and spot on accuracy when it comes to pinpointing a target.

GO-FIND 60

April 23, 2015 09:00am
minelab-go-find-60-finds-coin-in-Puerto Rico.jpg

In total I have found: 9 coins (quarter, 2-dimes, nickel, 5-pennies); 1 heavily encrusted ‘coin shaped’ thing that I will have to get cleaned up to see what it is, 1 very old-square nail, 1 small screw, a Corona bottle cap (made me thirsty!), and 6 or 7 pull tabs. In total I have dug 20 different treasures in 120 minutes – that is one every 6-minutes and it takes me at least 2 – 3 minutes to find the treasure from the signal.

18oz Golden Aussie Day

GPZ 7000

April 20, 2015 08:00am
minelab gpz gold detector finds gold cover map of australia.jpg

I stumbled on a patch picking up 12 solid nuggets ranging from 8g to 14g. As the sun was disappearing and a massive storm was approaching I could not pick them up fast enough as every step was a solid target. The lighting and rain set on by 6pm and forced me back to camp. 3 ounces in such a little time and knowing there was more was killing me. 65mm of rain that night and 80km wind gusts at one stage I thought I was have to pack camp up and get out otherwise I could be stuck for a week or 2. By 3am rain stopped and stars were out. 430am jumped on the quad and straight back into picking gold up. Total 18oz Golden Aussie Day.

Jackpot

CTX 3030

April 17, 2015 08:00am
minelab-metal-detector-finds-coin-old-1800.jpg

I kept reassuring myself that this trip was all about education and learning the detector and not to expect any more. New location and a couple of dollars in loose change showed up. Time was ticking away and night shift at work approached. I had just enough time to hit the road and visit some old convict areas i had read about. Finally arriving i jumped out of the car, hit the bush track keen to find a button at least! Finally heard a very different tone come from the CTX and then couldn’t get it back! I started to walk off in frustration but decided to stick with it. After 15mins i heard it again and this time got the Minelab Pro Pointer onto it. Well, under about 2 inches of dirt up against a small shrub i extracted this little ripper from 1858. Well i didn't know if i should dance, jump, sing all shout with joy! First trip out and just when i was ready to call it a day it felt like i hit the jackpot with this small historical find.

1700s coin in Australia

X-TERRA 305

April 17, 2015 12:00am
minelab-metal-detector-finds-old-chinese-coin.jpg

I opened the plug, checked the hole and got a repeatable 40 at 6 inches, checked with the pinpointer, pulled it out and thought "oh well just another washer" then i saw detail. I immediately remember seeing something on the internet about Chinese coins, i jump up, wave at my mum, take of my headphones, run and jump on the table she was sitting at and yell "1700s", turn around and jump off the table with a load "yea" filling the empty park with noise. I was so happy. I got a few more GB pennies then my mum came over and said "one more hole then we gotta go" so i went off and got a 32-36 signal, i got on my knees, dug a plug, checked with the pinpointer and there it was a silver ring. I had a feeling it was something special. When i got home i cleaned my finds and noticed inside the ring it had a pattern and some writing. I believe the ring is a coin ring (a ring that is fashioned out of a coin) and is a Britannia shilling from 1881! Thanks minelab!!! : ) and thank you mum for taking me!

The Horn Book

E-TRAC

April 16, 2015 12:00am
minelab-metal-detector-finds-horn-book back.jpg

As I cleaned the soil from it I could see what appeared to be the alphabet and it seemed to be complete with a lovely pattern also on the back. Whilst driving home I was thinking I’ve never seen anything like it before and I was trying to come up with every possibility what it had been used for, I knew that once I get home I would be able to get on the Internet and seek an identification from a great group on Metal Detecting Uk which is a great friendly site with great people or are really helpful. Within minutes of putting up for identification I got a id and was told it was a Horn Book and used to be a teaching aid and it was dated 1681 and the best condition they have seen. So I thought I would send pictures to Peter from the magazine The Searcher and got some great information back also that it’s the best he had seen and the first one they had seen with the date on. My E-TRAC seems to never stop amazing me and brings me hours of great excitement and all I can say is a Great Thanks to the guys at Minelab for a great Machine.

Ancient Gold Stater

CTX 3030

minelab ctx-3030 finds gold stater coin in UK.jpg

My metal detector is the Minelab CTX 3030 and I cannot praise this machine enough. I have had many wonderful finds. I previously owned a Minelab Safari which also did the job very well.
I have often wandered along daydreaming about finding my first gold coin. If I was ever to find one I guessed it would be a Sovereign as these seem to appear often on the various forums. I never thought I would find something as amazing as this. When I saw it in the soil my heart stopped! A Gallo Belgic Type A Gold Stater 7.5g. These pictures were taken when I found it. To find this coin in this condition is incredible. Thanks to my Minelab CTX 3030.
