I decided to hunt a party spot on the lake today here in Southwest Georgia. The water level is low and a lot of the beach is now exposed. About the fourth target in , I pulled something I didn't think I'd ever dig. I've been metal detecting since 1977 and have found several gold rings but never a gold coin. That changed this morning! I hunted for the chain but, was unable to locate it.

Correction on my original post made. - I stated that my gold coin was a 1 Oz coin. Further checking, I found that it is 1/4 Oz. This error was made by me because the bezel is covering the actual weight on the back and the lack of knowledge of gold coins on my part - Rather be honest with you folks.

Very Nice!! What did that ring up as? Was it below a zinc penny?
For what it's worth, a "double eagle" reads well above a zinc penny; closer to a copper penny/dime. I expect that a one-ounce gold bullion coin, given its larger size and higher purity, would read even higher...quarter maybe.

Meanwhile, to the O.P. -- OUTSTANDING!

Is it Bullion? Rather than a coin? I think a coin needs to be legal tender, some time in it's life.
Congrats on a first! I've never had a bullion 'coin' before, so still on my list.
