I was sent some photos overnight of some incredible finds with the GPX and an X-coil that forum member Elijah found. I thought I'd put the photos up for people to see as they're pretty incredible, I really love the old coin, imagine the history that goes with an old coin like that, I can't even imagine how old it must be It must have been a very wealthy person that lost it. I would love to detect in locations that have ancient coins like this. It looks like they just take a big nugget and stamp an image on it.
It looks like a bird of some sort?
And check out it's weight!!!!
That coins heavy! I wonder what you could buy with it when it was used as currency.
He also found this, I'm not sure what it could be, any ideas? It's likely to be very ancient too.

"INDIAN RIVER SHORES, Fla. – They don't call it the Treasure Coast for nothing.
Jonah Martinez, 43, a treasure hunter from Port St. Lucie, was scanning the sand with his metal detector at Turtle Trail Beach Access on Feb. 21 when his device picked up a signal. Buried beneath him was more than three centuries of history: Martinez pulled 22 Spanish silver coins from the surf, each dating back to a shipwreck 305 years ago, he said."
Paul is a very experienced detectorist.
He is one of the nicest gent's I have have ever chatted with online.
I have never met him personally.
I actually have a piece of his equipment he has loaned me to try out.
What an amazing find with Nox.
Couldn't happen to nicer guy.
