    Many different coins. From modern clad, to modern silver, to older silver, to Colonial coppers/silvers and even foreign coins. The thrill of the hunt happens from the fact you don't know what you'll dig up. The coin could be a 1994 dime, or a 1794 dime.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Better be sure you have permission and know where your digging in Williamsburg. A lot of that land is owned by the state or Colonial Williamsburg Foundation - neither of which are going to take too kindly to any Tom, Dick and Harry running around with a metal detector. Just to make it interesting Virginia actually minted half pennies late 1700s early 1800s.
