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.

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.
