Default My best gold find ever and I still canít believe it

This month has been outstanding for me. I have never in my life been this lucky and just want to say thank you to whoever is looking out for me up there.

I went out today for few hours just to kill time. I wasnít expecting much so I was just taking my time digging targets. I digging lots of thrash as usual along with pennies. I was using the 800 and since I wasnít finding much I started just jumping between park 1 and field 1. After a few hours I came across this iffy target that would jump all over the place with negative numbers and hit 20-21 once in a while. Iím like another Penny, I guess I will dig since itís my last target. I dug it and I see this weird coin staring back at me. I grab it and Iím a little confused now cause it doesnít look like a Penny at all. After a few seconds go by it finally clicks, OMG this is fracken gold coin. Now Iím shaking And trying to figure out what to do next. After a minute or two I figured I should put it on top of the detector to let it breath and take a picture. Well, here it is and I hope itís not a dream. Thank you for looking and dig everything because you just never know. HH

The coin hasnít been cleaned, not even with water. I decided to leave pretty much the way I found it.

Congrat-u-freaking-lations! I've been told the small gold coins ring up like pennies...never will I again pass up a penny signal.

Man that's a beautiful coin...

Congrats on a find of a life time.

Feel free to wash it with water. Gold is notoriously non-reactive. Just don't wipe it dry.

Sweeeeeeeet find, my man. A US gold coin is at the very top of my bucket list. Where do you live? How deep was it?

I'm very jealous. Big congratulations to you.
