Gold Pack Finds Gold

Every weekend, I go with my Minelab X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack for coin hunting. The name of the detector is "Gold pack", will I find gold? The chance is small, for some hunters it takes years to find a golden coin.

But the fourth day was already hit. A couple of hours walking on a corn field, a few rotten little cents and pieces of lead found. And then there was gold! A beautiful 10 gulden gold coin, year 1824. 6,7 grams of gold. What a brilliant coin, almost undamaged. Very nice.

What a wonderful moment as such a gold coin after more than 150 years under the coil of an X-TERRA 705 comes forth. On to the next gold ... There are more to find with my X-TERRA 705.
Thanks a lot Minelab!!!
