    Took me 28 years of detecting, I finally did it.. Gold Coin !

    There i was at my favorite local park, heading towards the car, swinging on the way of course and I got a signal, I remember thinking, "Oh another pull tab probably" but it wasn't a pull tab, it shined back at me as if it was minted yesterday. I couldn't believe what I was seeing, is this a full sovereign? I had only seen them a few time in youtube videos, but there it was 1900 Queen Victoria Full Sovereign. I was shaking, I couldn't even drive, I had to wait a few minutes and chill out.

    I am beyond thrilled.. I love this little coin. I love this hobby. Got it with the AT Gold my favorite detector.

    Here is the entire 6-7 hour hunt. There was even a kids buried cache in a plastic box that was sealed in a ziplock bag. With 24 pennies a zippo and a plastic gem.

    Yes in Michigan. There is a park in town that gives up some strange coins, like 2 weeks ago I got a 1887 Un Centavo, it's like a Mexican large cent, also pulled a 1922 peace dollar from that same park and tons of clad, almost seems like virgin ground, I get so much clad there.
    Hunting treasure is my greatest pleasure.

    I hope so too, I hope everyone who puts the time in gets to experience that thrill.. I thought gold rings and silver dollars were thrilling. This has topped them all.
