The Coins Do Add Up


Recommended Posts

The wife decided to get rid of some of our coins and cash them in nearly $400

The metals are a mixture of copper and nickel . 5c, 10c, 20c and 50c coins are 75 per cent copper and 25 per cent nickel.

Yes us Canadians and Aussies have it good when some of our coins are actually dollar coins, like the 2.00's... it's it awesome.....nice haul.

How do you clean them (and don't tell me this is how they are found -- if so I'm moving to Australia 😏)?

In the unsorted pile it looks like a ring next to the U, is it or is my eyes just playing tricks on me.

That is a lot of digging for sure and I hope your back gets to feeling better after all that.

Good luck on your next hunt, and bring in some gold to that pile of coins.

The one and 2 golden dollars are the cream on the beach dry sand. If you buy something with a paper/plastic not you have more chance of getting more $2 coins than $1. The $1 and $2 get spent straight away but the fake silver ones get thrown in a bucket. As most coins we find these days are found on the dry sand and are in good condition. All of these coins are post 1966 when Aus. changed to decimal currency and are not collected by me.

Back to the fake $1 and $2 coins I used to hit the main holiday spot about 200 miles east of Melbourne. There was a boy (from an unfortunate family) that would see my car and race over and dig all the targets for me. After the first time I came to the agreement that $1, $2 and jewellery were mine and for his effort he got all the other coins and toys that he dug up. I think he was always checking to see if I was there because he never missed when I was detecting.😁

Sounds like one great little partner right there ! .

Careful though , he might earn enough to buy a detector.

Then that beach will always be empty when you show up and he will be hopelessly addicted as we all knew he would .........🤩
