I'll just throw this out there...Is there a coin store in your area? Is there also a Numismatic Society or club? I ask this because both of those entities could be potential allies to assist you with your Clubs success...Those old Coin collectors know EVERYTHING there is to know about coins!! They have the Redbook memorized! They know all about the various local tokens and values of coins and, they are a veritable wealth of historical information that would benefit any Detectorists Club...some are former or active detectorists as well as bottlehunters and privey diggers even...

A Local Coin Store is pretty much the hub of any metal bugs in an area...they will know everybody that might be interested...They also may participate with some specials or gifts to your Organization for hunts or whatnot...Let alone the introductions for permissions to hunt both these outlets may afford to us detectorists...

Both these outfits are intrigued by us...The Coin Collector guys will buy your found stuff, the LCS wants to grow their customer base, will donate coins for your members prizes...its a win win all around if done right...

So there, just a few ideas that may help with your success and fun for your membership..if you can team up with a Coin Collectors Club, or the LCS, you have some good foundation there..Good Luck with your go forward!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.
