    Cru'Teams Gold Coin Collection...

    This is Cru'Dad & I's total collection of gold coins. Roughly speaking I found 70% of them. I still remember as a kid when I joined this great hobby & all I wanted to find was just 1 Celtic Gold. However, it took at least 20 years to get my first, but everyone is a golden memory!
    One such memory is the 1777 Guinea that Cru'Dad found. He went on a short weekend caravanning holiday & decided to take along the detector. On arriving he asked the owner if he could have a quick go around his land & the OK was given. After a couple of hours of digging the usual junk he got 1 last signal before it was too dark to see. With very little enthusiasm he dug what he knew would be another piece of junk, only to be faced with that little beauty. The landowner was more than surprised/grateful when Cru'dad showed him & offered him more cash to keep it, than they had spent on the weekend pitch....lol
    UPDATE:
    Just added this one!
    2 New Fields - unpromising but CELTIC GOLD popped out !

    Note to self, need to update with these:

    No this is my lifetimes collection of gold coins, I find them impossible to be parted from. We have spent a lot of money to keep them. Some take the cash, some just let us have them.

    The top left are the oldest & are from the time of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars circa 55BC & were minted in France to pay the largest Gallic army every raised.

    The thin gold Medieval types are the hardest to find.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Cru,

    The only more extensive group of gold coin finds I recall seeing was found by a detectorist in the Northwestern US....I believe I might have a picture on my PC if I can find it I'll pm it to you.

    Regards + HH

    Then you read about someone who is a newby and finds a million dollar cache in his first 5 minutes in the field...:

    Just for international relations I willingly give 50% of my pull tab collection for one gold coin...
