    My First gold coin EVER!!! (25 years of digging)

    I haven't been diggin much lately, gas prices are killing me and I've worked out all the close stuff. BUT the county high school just moved to it's big fancy new building, leaving the sport practice fields open. Until now, it's rare these fields are ever empty to go metal detecting! Now everyone's at the new facility and I have a bunch of new fields to hit

    Lots more can slaw than expected, but I was digging all the low end IDs for jewelry, first bit was a large necklace marked 14K, lawn mowered into dozens of bits...but it was clearly FAKE. Then I flipped over a plug, saw a nice little pendant, got the camera down for a close up, thinking it was a gold plate religious pendant...at least something to put on cam that wasn't clad...but when I picked it up I got this chill, wow that's heavy for a penny sized pendant. I could see the finely struck details through the dirt...NOT a religious pendant...coin in a bezel.

    I rubbed that sucker on the spot, surely GOT to be fake...but it was obviously not fake, such fine details, intense color (it looks like it's "glowing" in the video), not a trace of corrosion...I pretty much lost it on cam.

    1982 1/10 oz Krugerrand and the bezel is marked 14k.

    25 years of diggin and my FIRST gold coin EVER. I'm pumped. Had to turn off the detector and go home...not a CHANCE I was going to be able to focus after that.

    Great find! Awesome. The Krugerrand is my favorite modern gold coin. You seem like my kind of MD'er Jim. May you be blessed with more good luck in all your future digs.
