    Gold coin today...

    Dug my third gold coin this afternoon. Was on a farm field that has given up an awesome amount of relics and this popped up. Thought it was a typical brass/aluminum coin then the WOW factor kicked in! Prussian King Wilhelm II, 1898, 3.98 gms, .900 Gold, Mintmark A=Berlin, Denomination 10 Mark. Obverse.

    How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'
