Default Coin Planter

My club is going to have its first seeded silver hunt. I haven't seen any pictures of coin planters, but am told they exist. Can anyone post a picture of one. It would be greatly appreciated.

My club just used a knife, made a slit a shoved the coin in.
No muss, no fuss and no indication of a target in any specific area.
I would assume whatever this coin planter thing is might leave a trace.

Currently hunting with an F70, a Mojave and a borrowed Red Racer.
Plus a Nox 800.

Our club is having its first next month.
We will be making slits with a knife and pushing them in an inch or two.

Saw a corn planter at a flea market this weekend, but alas, no coin planters.

I seen some sort of 'seeded hunt coin planting tool' on the internet once...going from memory, it was simply a fabbed up hollow shaft device with a narrow shovel tip welded on..the guy stuck in the blade, rocked out a hole, dropped a coin down through the hollow shaft, pulled out the blade, and gave the area a stomp to seal up the sod slice..It looked pretty bending over required...

Hell, depending on the soil matrix/moisture, a fellow could pretty much just punch a hole with a bare bones rod of some sort, or about anything, and drop in a coin? Not complicated at all..

They are a pipe with a bend near end and blade attached. Quite a few of the coins still end up on the top using them. They may prevent bending over but they aren't that great IMHO. It also results in more on edge and deeper coins if not extremely careful....which negates any speed savings in planting.

Our club uses them and although they aren't the best in a hunt where thousands of coins are buried they sure are a back saver.
