A metal detector’s dream – the worst erosion in 40 years!

A metal detector’s dream – the worst erosion in 40 years!

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!
