    A Little Gold Coin From France Found In The Canadian Wilderness

    Hey folks, I haven't posted any of my finds here in awhile and I hope that everyone enjoys seeing this one. I love to hunt Native Artifacts and older Relics out in the bush and came across this coin beside a portage that has been used for years and years. I don't get too many signals while bush whacking so I dig everything that goes beep. This coin was a few inches under some mud and rocks on the edge of the river. I can't believe that I actually found this while looking for Artifacts, found a nice little stone knife for my troubles that day as well. This is probably my first and last gold coin that I will ever find but will be returning to pound the heck out of that site again this Fall or early Spring. Maybe the person who lost this years ago had more in his pockets that day? This is by far the oldest coin that I have ever found and was shaking for hours after digging it. Thanks for looking and good luck to all of you in your future hunts.

    Very Nice!!!

    Sad that it has damage to the rim!

    This coin has been considered a lucky charm since it was first minted in 1871 and continues to be consider so, hence the name given this coin, "Lucky Angel", so you now have you own lucky angel!!!

    Very cool!

    Gold coins don't show up all too often, when one does it still proves they're out there waiting to be found. Any gold in any condition is a good find these days! congrats

    and I don't understand that either...when I was a kid if I dropped a nickel I would have spent the rest of the week looking for it! Money was not something I would have ever lost...let alone GOLD....

    Serious congratulations are in order, awesome find.
    I'm still waiting on my first gold coin, almost 35 years under my belt detecting, no luck yet.
    Awesome, your find renews my hope that someday I may find one.
