Finds in the First 60 Seconds

I have just upgraded from an X-TERRA 705 (which I purchased 6 weeks ago) and my new machine arrived this morning, I have just come back from my first session with the new Safari, with 3 Roman coins, 4 Old Pennies and a Gold Minim (in the first 10 yards and first 60 seconds) from a field which has been well detected, the minim is the first gold coin I have ever found...... I am absolutely over the moon, Thank you Minelab for the effort and work you put in to creating, what are in my opinion the best machines available.
