I went to a new location that some fellow detectorist told me about. I met a few of them there. And right away i started finding chinese coins. Then I found my first silver jewelry. So I switched to 4khz to hunt for deep silver but there was too much EMI so I switched to 10khz. After that I dug a few more coins. Then I got a faint signal and started digging deeper and deeper. About a foot down I hit some coins. And some were still stuck together. I kept pulling coin after coin. A Total of 130 coins came out of that hole. The coins that I have identified so far are from the Ming Dynasty 1674.

I look forward to your future coin finds. It's rare on this website forum to have a treasure hunter in an area that can find Chinese Dynasty coins that could date to Ming or even MUCH earlier. If you do find early Chinese Dynasty coins I hope they can be displayed as a banner. It would be like finding early Roman coins in Europe. Good luck in your search. (thumbs up)
Thanks Yang Hao

Wow. 130 coins from the 1600’s in a cache and no one has thrown the B word around yet? Walk tall with that find friend! I’ll throw a banner vote in for that.

Thanks DigToChina, I guess since I am in asia I was digging to America. Whats the B word?

And now you know what the B word is πŸ˜‚ Congratulations on making banner!

I can only imagine what a thrill it must've been to dig coin after coin after coin.

I have found only 2, one near a cotton mill in a baseball diamond, the other in a filled in canal that was dredged out, both in old areas of town, Im thinking early immigrant workers....maybe.

Thanks Antiquarian, This is what makes detecting fun. And I had some of my metal detecting group with me. They were just as excited as I was. Happy hunting!
