Product Description

Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector
with 5x8" DD Search Coil and MS-2 Headphones Plus FREE Metal Detecting & Treasure Hunting Accessories

The AT Gold metal detector was designed to find tiny gold nuggets in the most challenging prospecting environments, including shallow fresh water hunting. The AT Gold operates at a high frequency optimized for gold prospecting and includes a True All Metal Mode. The All Metal Mode provides the greatest possible depth and sensitivity. It also provides a continuous audio response to allow the operator to hear the subtle detection signals produced by faint targets. The AT Gold is a Motion All Metal detector, meaning that slight motion of the search coil is required to maintain detection, although static detection of targets can be achieved while in Pinpoint mode.

More Information

Garrett AT Gold Metal Detector 

with 5x8" DD Search Coil and MS-2 Headphones Plus FREE Metal Detecting & Treasure Hunting Accessories

The AT Gold includes manual and automatic Ground Balance plus an exclusive Ground Balance Window feature to optimize the detector’s performance in highly mineralized ground, where gold is most often found. This detector is waterproof to a maximum depth of 10 feet (3 meters) for searching in freshwater lakes and streams. Gold Detectors also find Coins, Rings, Jewelry, Relics, Artifacts and Buried Treasures. In addition to its True All Metal Mode, the AT Gold includes two Discrimination Modes, making it a versatile coin and relic hunting machine. When selecting either the DISC 1 or DISC 2 mode, the operator gains more Tone ID information from targets in addition to the ability to discriminate unwanted trash targets (e.g. nails, foil, pull tabs).

Finding tiny nuggets of gold in even the most demanding environments is a cinch for the Garrett AT Gold! This metal detector was designed for prospecting in fresh water with a high operating frequency of 18 kHz. The AT Gold includes an All Metal Mode since prospecting requires a device that can provide the greatest possible sensitivity and depth. A continuous audio response is also built-in to allow users to hear not-so-obvious signals from indistinguishable targets.

Since the AT Gold is an All Metal Detector, it must be moved slightly to pick up a signal. For picking up targets while standing still, there is also a Pinpoint Mode for static metal detecting. This devices comes with a manual and automatic Ground Balance feature for optimal adjustment to the detector's surroundings. Exclusive to the AT Gold is is the Ground Balance Window feature which turbo charges the detector's performance in highly mineralized ground. This is especially handy in rocky areas where gold is typically found. It's even waterproof up to ten feet which makes it perfect for freshwater lakes and streams.

While the AT Gold is primarily known for its ability to find gold, the True All Metal Mode on this detector includes two different discrimination modes for coin and relic hunting. The user can select between DISC 1 or DISC 2 mode and obtain more Tone ID information from buried targets. It's great for discriminating against unwanted trash targets such as nails, foil and pull tabs. A High Resolution Iron Discrimination feature can differentiate the desirable targets from iron junk.

The Target ID technology on the AT Gold includes two separate indication scales that allows users to view the discrimination setting (Lower Scale) and the analysis of each target (Upper Scale). Additionally, the Target ID provides a more specific target value allowing for greater accuracy of identification.

The AT Gold is extremely easy to use as Garrett has designed this detector to be operated with one hand only. There are no knobs or dials that require a second hand while in use. Several advanced audio features are also baked in to allow the treasure hunter to customize the sound to their liking. A standard 5" x 8" (13 x 20 cm) DD search coil is included to allow for nugget prospecting in highly mineralized environments. This device is sought out not only by gold enthusiasts who are keen on the advanced audio features the AT Gold provides, but by coin and relic hunters who want to take advantage of this detector’s numerous features as referenced below.

    • ★★★★★ Works great on iron and brass and big gold BUT

    Review by Jo on December 2, 2020

    Used for 3 years, finds a gold ring buried 3" in sand, but does NOT find small nuggets in fresh water - tried with purchased small nuggets and no response at any frequency or setting. Excels at old rifle shells, rusty nails, aluminum foil and pull tabs, BUT NO RESPONSE WITH VERIFIED SMALL NUGGETS in or out of water.
    • ★★★★★ My # 1 Detector

    Review by Fat Fool Metal Detecting on YouTube Rick Landaker for Facebook on August 20, 2019

    I Love this detector if you want to find rings you can find lots of rings and it is a crazy coin finder as well. But it has a little hard time near salt water but dry sand it is great and in fresh water it will do great . my detector has paid for me to go England 2 years in a row I can not say how much I love it and I have the Minelab Equinox 800 I use for saltwater only I Head out for the 2nd England trip August 27th 2019 come back September 18 2019 after Detectival!! yay yes I will use the Garrett AT Gold with Garrett Z-Lynk MS-3 Headphones / Pro-Pointer AT Z-Lynk Kit it makes life easy when you go on digs with people and club digs.
    • ★★★★★ Great detector!

    • ★★★★★ A-1 Top Notch

    Review by Steve on August 20, 2019

    This is my all-time favorite machine at this point. Great relic and coin hunting Hawk of a detector!I live in North GA. Mountains-in Dahlonega, home of the first US goldrush.I found three nice nuggets my first time out on the Chestatee River.Very easy to learn operations and would recommend it to anyone in gold bearing land.nicely priced I might add.Thanks Garrett and Kellyco!Steve Finnemore
    • ★★★★★ Fantastic Detector for Relics & Iron Infested Areas

    Review by Leon-Art-O on August 3, 2017

    This machine is so much different than the AT Pro that the only true similarity between them is the outward appearance. The AT Gold has amazing speed (recovery), it's at least 3 times faster than the Pro. The all-metal mode brings it up to the level of a "real" metal detector and the ability to use the iron audio feature within the all-metal mode to get 2 tones is also a big plus. The possibility of losing a bit of depth because of the 18kHz is easily offset with a larger coil. I air-tested both the Pro and the Gold together with the same coils and the depth difference was very little (1/8"?) - If you have the chance to buy either, I'd suggest the Gold. Especially if your going to be hunting in iron infested locations with nails and such. This machine will pull out the goods!
    • ★★★★★ Total Nonsense

    Review by Ricky on October 10, 2016

    I read about this one and heard good things, but I would not have gotten it if I had known that when you use it without headphones it is very, very loud and disturbing to neighbors or anybody within a block, there is NO VOLUME control, HOW DUMB IS THAT! I want to be able to turn it down and I don't want to wear headphones all the time! I was very upset about this, I wish I knew a way to break into it and turn the speaker down, or give me my money back. I will buy a Garrett if it cost more or less to get a volume, good grief.
    • ★★★★★ Bought 2 AT Gold

    Review by Jacky M on April 7, 2015

    Had both for about a month. Must say they're great and easy to learn! Found over $50.00 in coins, silver rings and other things. Does what it says. The key is get to know your machine! THANKS KELLYCO for a great price and service.
    • ★★★★★ Purchase of AT Gold

    Review by Roger R on May 22, 2014

    I was greatly surprised that Kellyco lived up to their ad. I received my AT Gold on time, as promised. OPTION 1 contained all material except the belt holder for the pin pointer. Option 1 is the cheaper of the two options. However, no other company offered anything extra and all had a higher price for the AT Gold. This is an exceptional bargain. I will gladly use Kellyco for my future needs. A great experience.

    Q: Can this detector go in water ?

    A: Yes! This detector is waterproof to 10 feet!
  • Posted On: 10/11/2020 By: PAUL SORENSON

    Q: I have been told this is a good detector. I am a starter at this but want to learn. Question- to what depths can this detector pick up hits? Would it pick up at 3 feet? Paul

    A: This is a great entry level detector to use! However, it is a VLF detector and cannot go 3 feet. Size of the target and soil conditions have an impact on depth. We can say based on the coil size it will go 6 to 8 inches.
