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.


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.

1.3kg (2.8 lbs) light with a unique collapsible snap-lock system makes it easy to pack and go.

Coin collector

Review by Csg on March 12, 2020

Finally got this Vanquish. Love the portability and lightweightness. Finding lots of coins with it. Definitely worth the wait!

The Vanquish is a beast!

Review by JonPie on March 03, 2020

I'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!
