Minelab VANQUISH 540 Metal Detector: for the serious detectorist who demands ultimate performance. As if Multi-IQ technology, audio control, and pinpoint wasn’t enough the 540 also boasts iron-bias control, red LED backlight and rechargeable batteries. What’s more, it comes with a waterproof 12” coil as standard for greater depth. No matter where the hunt takes you, the 540 is the ultimate detector that lets you detect on your terms.
SIMULTANEOUS MULTI-FREQUENCY TECHNOLOGY
Why Multi-IQ? Because with Minelab’s revolutionary Multi-IQ technology, you’ve got the combined power of multiple detectors in one — all working for you at the same time. Simply turn on and go. Nothing goes undetected and no terrain is off limits. Silver gold or jewellery. Park, field or beach. Unearth the power of VANQUISH with Multi-IQ.
ALL METALS. ALL SOILS. ALL THE TIME.
No matter what you seek, VANQUISH has you covered. Simply select one of the four Find Modes — Coin, Relic, Jewellery, or All Metal — then start swinging. Each mode is pre-programmed and optimised to give you the best performance, anytime and anywhere: park, field or beach. You can even save your favourite settings to a custom Find Mode.
VANQUISH welcomes tough terrain. It dominates at the beach in wet sand and salt water, outperforming other detectors that can’t compete. 25 discrimination segments deliver ultimate control over what metals you want to accept or reject.

Review by Csg on March 12, 2020Finally got this Vanquish. Love the portability and lightweightness. Finding lots of coins with it. Definitely worth the wait!
Review by JonPie on March 2, 2020I've had the Vanquish on about 5 hunts now. For the price range this thing kicks butt! It runs silent one bar from full sensitivity in areas where all other machines need turned down to run. Also the depth is incredible! I have already pulled pennies at 12 inches. I'm hitting parks that have been pounded for years by CTX's, E-tracs, and Equinoxes even as of late. I have been going back through and pulling out all of the deep coins the others are missing.... Very impressive Minelab!

Q: Hi. I am interested in a cheap and good quality detector that can be used for salty and fresh water. As also sand and earth. This would be a good option?
A: If you are looking for an entry level detector that is good for both salt and fresh water, I would recommend the Vanquish 540. It is a multi frequency machine that makes the detectors performance much more stable in the salt water. It is not completely waterproof but the coil is. As long as you do not get the control box wet, you should be ok.
