    Gold Coin, Gold ring, Gold Coin Ring. YAY!

    Today, is a day I won’t soon forget and what makes it even more special is the fact that I specifically went to the park with one thing in mind. I was there to FIND GOLD! Yes, I knew in my gut that today was going to be the day! I don’t know, sometimes you get a feeling and you go with it but never in my wildest dreams did I really expect it to happen.

    Anyhow, after about an hour of hitting an area that I have cherry picked in the past, I got a very odd signal. At one angle the vdi was a solid low 60s number, at another angle it was a steady low 50s and then another angle gave me high 40s. I considered leaving it alone but the tones were too good to walk away from. So I did what any curious detectorist does. I dug it up!

    When it first came out of the ground, i was not sure what i had. I knew it was a ring and i was hoping it was gold but it didn't have the shine i have seen in the past and i have been fooled before by Gold plate junk rings.

    But, Just in case, I took a picture of it at a different angle and then put it in my pocket for later.

    Finally, after a little more detecting, i called it quits for the day and headed to the car. It was then that i wiped off the top and saw the design. I was like...Cool a panda ring!

    And then, much to my surprise, after cleaning it up i found the panda was in fact a GOLD coin mounted in a Gold ring!

    Thanks, the last time i found a gold ring was in the 1980s and of course i have never found a gold coin at all so this makes up for them both!
