Text disappeared for some reason....anyway the question was not about hoards or caches. Answers would be very different if all types of gold coin recoveries were include.

I know that Tom started detecting when the transistor was invented, so he has the edge on most of you guys. I live in South Carolina. There were only 4 gold coins lost here, and I found all of them. I did manage to find 1 on the east coast of Florida. Most of our gold was stolen by the Yanks when they came down!!! Tony

Anyone having problems with the new forum ? Zodiac's picture (and about 10 % of others won't display on my computer since the change). All fine before. Also can't change the detector owned list. Wanted to delete one off and add another yesterday having sold my last XP and it would not work for love or money.

URBAN DISCOVERY !
I've dug a lot of American coins in my years of hunting but no Gold coins at all.
I've only seen a few at club meets, and I knew a guy in Charleston SC that showed me a $1 gold coin he said he found.

I myself have found none. However, an old Vietnam buddy of mine found a fence post treasure. TEN, yes TEN gold coins in a can. My brother in Bishop, Ca. saw the actual coins I only saw pictures. The coins were found NE of Bishop.

I probly can't find it but a couple years ago I read a post on TNet about a dude hunting an old Army post and finding many gold coins, mostly $5
pieces. He had done due diligence and knew where the tents of the enlisted men were and knew that the men confined to base put down blankets
to gamble on. The soldiers were paid in gold so it must have been long ago. Can't remember the total but it was a lot more than those mentioned.
It was a western fort, either AZ or California. I'm guessing most of those lost coins were lost when "dissagreements" were going on.
