I have similarly made great finds with the same arrangement as yours and not just tiny non ferrous, although they turn up also. I never considered the elliptical for fields cause of the smaller sweep footprint, but I’m going to rethink this given your experience. Nice finds.

FWIW the elliptical actually has slightly greater sweep coverage than the 9” round (though the 9” round has slightly more depth) because it is 9.5” heel-to-toe.  But the 11” round has both of those beat in terms of swing coverage, and it has slightly more depth.

Yes but the 11" is significantly heavier than the HF coils( 400 vs 320g ) . I would only use the 11 coil for big coins hunting in clean soils , using a low freq like 5khz. But for this kind of deep searching I prefer my Vanquish 540 with a V10 or a V12 coil.

I like the elliptical coil.  Made some nice finds with mine.  In areas where Deus and LF (9” and 11”) coils had been used a whole lot.  Wore out this place like no tomorrow.  And the elliptical coil on this site on second and third outings hit pay dirt.  Extremely small cut reale and a half dime.
