    Just Joined the Club.. The Gold Coin Club!

    I've been metal detecting for 7 years now and I thought I was prepared for everything. WRONG!!

    After a number of false alarms (most notably a Brazilian coin) I Got a GOLD COIN!! I took it in my hand and stared at it..definitely Gold and definitely a Gold Coin! The back had something soldered to it..perhaps making a cufflink or a broach? Still...it's a Gold Coin and it's my first and I Love it! So excited I really couldn't detect any more until I told someone so I called my detector buddy. I couldn't tell him more than Yes it's a gold coin, No I can't tell the country or date...it's a GOLD COIN!!

    OK..breath ... ( can you tell I'm excited?) OK.. this was at my local beach..been there a couple dozen times. It was about 6" deep in the wet sand and a nice strong signal with my Garrett ATX.

    The coin is a Mexican dos y medio peso Gold coin dated 1945..just a little over 2 grams.

    Next on my list is a USA Gold Coin (of any denomination)...one can dream.

    Mega congrats !!! That is AWESOME!!! Be sure you remember to breath now and then!
    Definitely used as jewelry, cuff link like you said or earring, necklace, etc.

    You are holding in your hand what people dream of! If you sleep with it under your pillow at lest put it in something good sized so you don 't lose it! Nice job!

    Awesome find! I bought one of those (and a gold 2 peso) years ago when gold was relatively cheap, they are neat coins.
