With unprecedented weather over the past few months, Queensland and New South Wales beaches have experienced the worst erosion for 40 years. Many beaches have 2-3m cliffs where sand used to be. This means that current beach levels can go back decades, and offer a treasure trove of old goodies just below the surface.
It has never been such a good time to get out there an have a swing on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and northern NSW. In just a couple of sessions, using our trusty Fisher and Minelab metal detectors we found over 100 coins and other interesting pieces, including a couple of rings and pendants. Silver florins, threepence, half pennies, shillings and the regular 1c and 2c coins aplenty. At one point we were finding a coin every 2 minutes!
Get out there and get yourself some historical treasure before the oceans cover them over with sand again!
