    question about gold coins

    Hello all
    It's been a while since i posted anything(being winter n all ),and cant wait until the much warmer days of spring,anyway.

    My ? about gold coins is: when one finds a gold coin do they come out of the ground clean like the silver coins do,or dirty?

    I believe i know the answer but it doesn't hurt to ask

    Ty and good luck,HH to those of you that can still dig
    I kept on digging the hole deeper and deeper looking for the treasure chest until I finally lifted my head, looked up and realized that I had dug my own grave.

    Re: question about gold coins

    Here's one I found not more than 30 minutes out of the ground, $5 gold piece came out shinny as a full moon.

    Not to say all gold coins come out shinny as I've found plenty of old Gold Jewelry coming out black.

    Re: question about gold coins

    Paul and Holiday are right. They come out of the grand shiny, no matter how nasty the soil, salts, minerals, etc... are. Silver, on the other hand, sometimes comes out bad in nasty soils.
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!
