    Dave gives the best example. We can't even convince the government to get rid of the worthless penny, so how are we ever going to convince them to go cashless? The only reason we still have pennies is because the politicians are getting "perks" from the mining companies. Why else would you make something and take a loss on every one you made? Just getting rid of all the coins would cost the politicians billions in payola, so that's never going to happen.

    Living for the hunt!
    So will people have to rent debit machines when hosting garage/yard sales in this cashless society?
    Oh, electronic payments with your zombie phones? Sure, you want 25 cents for this? I'll send a quarter to your e-mail right now.....
    Sound stupid? That's what I thought when the person in front of me used their credit or debit card to pay for a measly coffee over a decade ago.
    Now look at everyone tapping their chips or phones. Groomed perfectly by the financial institutions.
    "We pay for everything on our credit card so that we get the points reward." Yeah, the banks and credit companies are making boatloads of money!
    I still use cash for most of my transactions but the young cashiers just get confused.
    If they don't enter it into the till correctly, then they have no idea as they cannot add simple math.
    Heck, they teach math in school with your zombie phones. There's probably an app to help people wipe their asses because humans are becoming useless!
    If they force me to get a zombie phone to pay for everything, then I'm off to live in the woods AGAIN! Screw this world!!!!
    However, some kid the other day said that Canada is going to release the $5 coin soon.
    They've been saying that for years but who knows, maybe it will come out someday.
    If it does, you can guarantee it will be made out of steel.
    A metal detector can only do so much..........
    It's up to you to do the rest!

    That's the main reason banks want a cashless society. Costs too much to handle and transport those dirty coins and bills. The casinos figured that out many years ago. That's why I no longer gamble. Not much fun to win $100 on video poker and have the machine spit out a slip of paper! Boring!

    True, but the fun part is hearing all those half dollars clanging into the till!

    What are your thoughts on this reality?
    Been that way for me right along. The Gummint stopped making the coins I look for around 1964. Clad keeps me in batteries; but rechargeables would solve that.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I not only look for coins. I also enjoy gold n silver rings. Gold chains bracelets, golg teeth those things make the hunt more exiting than coins. Even if there are no coins im still going to metal detect. Instead of keeping me busy with coins i will find pulltabs and jewlery.

    No, no, no. That's what they want you to think.

    The main reason they want a cashless society is because they want to track and TAX everything you do. Cash makes it easy for you to pay me, face to face, without Uncle Sam getting his cut. Not so with electronic methods of money transfer.

    I wonder how many lives would be saved if stores did not accept cash? Think about all the bank and store clerks killed every year over chump change.

    There will always be something to find. The tech will continue to evolve.
    In a cashless society everyone will need an I.D. Maybe we could get a handle on voter fraud then?
    If your earnings go to your acount and there is no cash allowed,this does give our self-annointed overlords a greay deal of power. You can have access to your money shut off in a heart beat for any reason
    or no reason.
    I suspect there will always be barter. And there are still many people on this planet who have never heard of cards or banks.
    But the world will change eventually.

    I guess my little 4S IPhone would be the same as a 4" coil to get in between the calls.

    When I returned to detecting, my goal was to find all kinds of coin. I quickly tired of that endeavor and turned to finding thing of historical value so that I could share them with the persons of the area in which they were found. As an engineer by trade and an engineering teacher, I have never been a big history guy but that is beginning to change. It's good to know where we came from ... may tell us where we are heading.

    Heck .. after WWIII .. the few left will be bartering with stones.

    Everyone is right, but it’s still hard to believe that one day a child will say the words, “What was money?”
