    Gold coin in the dry sand

    Got a tip about some old silver coins still being found where a new board walk has been built(post hurricane sandy). My buddy pulled a 1916 barber dime. I found this 1911 British half Sovereign one scoop down! My first gold coin and hopefully not the last. Thanks for looking, GL HH MikeClick image for larger version.

    Nice find!! I always do better on the high beach too, seems like everybody ignores it and heads for the water.

    Funny, the only reason I hunted this high was because a local guy who hunts for mainly gold told my buddy and I that he was still finding some older silver coins in that area. So we decided heck, silver coins aren't all that bad. Never thought I would pull a gold coin. When they rebuilt the board walk they removed all the sand from underneath and spread it across the existing dry sand area. Let's just say I'll be there again tomm

    Thanks Joe, no CTX. Looks like too many gold coins have been found lately. You should read some of the replies from where I posted this on Today's finds.
