Best Places to Treasure Hunt with Your Metal Detector

Treasure Hunting Tips

When treasure hunting, two of the most important things are knowing where to search and having the right metal detector to help you.

When you’re eager to find lost coins, jewelry, relics and treasure—the first question in your mind is “where should I hunt?” Obvious spots are probably right under your nose and it’s prudent to get suggestions from veteran treasure hunters. After all, they’ve been experimenting with metal detectors for years and know where to find success. If you’re a fan of the National Geographic TV show Diggers, you’ve heard KG and Ringy talk about finding ‘nectar.’ This refers to the millions of dollars in coins and artifacts that sit just below our feet. So, with metal detector in hand—you’re probably ready to find some valuable nectar yourself. Here are suggestions from the experts for potentially successful metal detecting spots:

Public Parks & Recreation areas – search around drinking fountains, benches, picnic tables, walkways, entertainment platforms & pavilions. When metal detecting on private property you need to get permission from the land owner. With that said, amusement parks, fairgrounds, carnival & circus sites can be great spots to search. Any areas where lots of people have gathered over the years such as sports stadiums are great sites. You can check around the buildings, in the parking lot and even beneath stadium seats!

When metal detecting, it is important to learn about the local and national laws before setting out on your hunt. National treasure hunting organizations and local treasure hunting clubs can provide information on the current laws, rules and regulations. Other top sites to explore include:

  • – Beach swimming areas and public pools – especially concession and play areas
  • – Swimming pools and swimming holes
  • – Fishing piers, boat ramps and landings
  • – Horse and hiking trails, campgrounds and children’s camps
  • – Schools and colleges – around playground equipment, water fountains and doors or where people wait in line
  • – Tourist and rest stops lookouts and scenic spots
  • – Wishing wells and fountains- search below ponds or water where people pitch coins
  • – Service stations – don’t forget older and abandoned gas stations
  • – Old drive-in theater locations – search around ticket windows and concession areas
  • – Motels and hotels- current and former locations
  • – Old buildings and abandoned homes – doorways, next to porches and steps, near mailboxes and along all walkways and paths
  • – Your own yard – you will be surprised what you can recover from your own backyard!

These are just a few ideas for treasure hunting locations. You can also visit your local library and do a little research on local history. Perhaps you’ll stumble across information about rumored treasure caches or the sites of old buildings. This may provide you with a list of spots that could yield quantities of old and valuable treasure. If you’re new to the hobby of metal detecting, check out the articles at MetalDetector.com that cover beginner basics, such as Digging Into Research at Your Local Library- Uncovering the Best Sites for Locating Treasures.

Tips For Using Metal Detectors During the Winter

Depending on where you live, metal detecting may have become only a three season activity.  But it doesn’t have to be!  Even if you can’t actually dig the ground up there are a variety of ways you can still be metal detecting during the winter months.

Daniel Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com said “Winter in the North East, where we are located, is a magical time of year. Thoughts of Christmas and other seasonal traditions are on all of our minds. It is the time of the year when children have metal detectors at the top of their holiday wish lists. Be sure to read our section on selecting the best metal detectors for kids. 

Unfrozen Water Bodies

Some of our top metal detectors for sale are perfect for hunting during the winter. If you have water bodies that aren’t frozen, you can get yourself a pair of insulated waders or a wetsuit and use your metal detector here.  Shallow water metal detecting can be a lot of fun and lead to some very unique finds. There’s also a lot less trash to dig when metal detecting in the water. Two popular waterproof detectors are made by Garrett Metal Detectors. These models include the AT Pro and the new ATX which we reviewed in our October blog post.

The Shoreline and Beaches

The shoreline and some beaches (especially saltwater beaches) can also be good places to go metal detecting in the winter.  Metal detectors from Bounty Hunter are fun to use at the beach as all of their models contain water-proof search coils. Even when surrounding areas are snowy, often, with the help of the water and the wind these areas remain snow free.  Plus, sand doesn’t generally freeze above the high tide line, and even then, with a little help from the sun, these areas can be digable during some parts of the day depending on where you are.

Winter Gathering Spots

Even though the ground may be frozen, you can still hunt for treasure in the snow.  Places like sledding hills, ice skating and hockey rinks, and ice fishing ponds can lead to a great deal of treasure like jewelry and coins since items easily fall out of people’s pockets during activities like these. You can find them all winter long with your metal detector!

Researching Areas for Future Hunts

If it’s just too cold and too frozen to actually get outside and go metal detecting where you are, you can begin researching places to hunt once the weather breaks.  The best, most successful metal detectorists do their research before they head out into the field.  They look for specific spots that were well traveled, or where events took place in the past.  Information on your area can easily be found at places like the local historical society and the library.  You might even speak to users from local metal detecting clubs in your area. Longtime residents of the area can also be excellent resources.

Although searching for treasure in the actual ground may not be possible during the winter, you can still go metal detecting.  And, by preparing for spring, summer, and fall metal detecting trips during the winter, all your treasure hunts become more successful.  Don’t put your metal detecting equipment away when the weather turns.  Use these tips to find ways that you can keep up your hobby all year long no matter what mother nature throws at you!

What Does a Metal Detector’s Search Coil Do?

search coil

The search coil of your metal detector allows you to better scan the ground for hidden treasures.

The finest metal detector in the world is no better than its search coil, so be sure not to overlook your search coil’s importance in treasure hunting. The type of search coil you use will determine how effectively your metal detector will perform the task at hand. What exactly is the search coil’s function? The search coil is mounted on the lower end of the detector’s stem. It takes power from the control housing through the search coil cable. Then, it transmits data between the metal detector and the ground. The search coil simply scans to allow the metal detector to find metal targets.

Most search coils operate with electromagnetic transmitter and receiver antennas embedded within the search coil. An invisible electromagnetic field is generated and picks up signals from the surface you’re scanning—soil, rock, water, sand, etc. Search coils designed by major manufacturers and provided with their detectors are generally reliable because they are maximized for performance. However, experts say there is no such thing as a standard search coil. A coil that operates perfectly in the park may not be suited for a pop-top filled beach. Search coils that find coins are not the same as those used to search for a treasure cache. There is also the issue of moisture and/or water-resistant capabilities. Find out if your search coil can resist a small amount of moisture, is waterproof for operating in heavy rainfall, or is fully submersible. Most coils made today fall into this last category of fully submersible.

Size Matters When it comes to Search Coils

Search coils come in many shapes and sizes. In general, the smaller the search coil, the smaller the object that can be detected. Larger search coils are designed to detect larger, deeper targets—but they can often locate small objects at deep depths, too. From small to large, search coils are designed with specific objectives in mind. Here is a snapshot of sizes & functions.

3-5″ Diameter: Very small search coils, also called “Snipers,” are ideal for trash-filled areas, allowing a detectorist to pinpoint coins in spite of nails and other junk. These search coils are able to maneuver in tight spots and around obstacles. They will signal at the detection of small and shallow targets. However, depth of detection is not as great as larger search coils.

7-9.5″ Diameter: This size search coil is what comes equipped with most detectors. 7-9″ search coils are usually the best for coin hunting and general purpose treasure hunting. These search coils are lightweight with a good scanning width and they are sensitive to a wide range of targets. Mid-range search coils offer decent depth of detection.

10-12″ Diameter and Larger: Large search coils are designed to detect coins and other targets at greater depths. Precise pinpointing is more difficult with the larger sizes because they pick up more mineralization. But these search coils are beneficial for finding, large relics and treasure caches. They provide considerable ground coverage, so you can cover a lot of ground more quickly than with a medium search coil.

Shop by Features for Search Coils at MetalDetector.com

MetalDetector.com stocks over 100 available optional search coils for just about every manufacturer’s detectors. To make it easier to narrow down your search results, you can Shop by “Features.” Choose from Brand, Search Coil Size, List Price, Search Coil Shape or Type, Audio Identification, Water Resistance, Country or Warranty. Daniel Bernzweig, of MetalDetector.com suggests, “To improve your understanding in all types of treasure hunting, I encourage you to learn about the various types of search coils and practice using them whenever possible.” Learn more about search coils in the Getting Started section of MetalDetector.com’s Learning Library: Choosing the Best Search Coil.

Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker Metal Detector Review

Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker Metal Detector

The Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker is one of the best metal detectors for kids as it's easy to use and powerful enough to find hidden treasures.

For a child 8 and under there’s no better metal detector than the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker. While older children are big enough to use an adult metal detector with an adjustable arm, most children 8 and younger still need something smaller and lighter weight. That’s where the Junior Treasure Tracker comes in. We reviewed this detector over a year ago and thought we should take another look since it is one of the most popular kids detectors and there have also been new reviews submitted by customers.

Many metal detectors made for younger children sacrifice quality for a lower price tag. This is unfortunate though as lower quality machines often make metal detecting hard for children because they don’t have the features that are necessary to actually find treasure. The Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker is the opposite of all this though. It’s a child sized metal detector (the adjustable search pole extends to 27 inches and the metal detector weighs less than 2 lbs.) with a set of features you’d find on any other basic hobby detector made for adults.

The Junior Treasure Tracker also comes equipped with a 6.5 inch, water resistant search coil that’s able to find coin sized treasure upwards of 5 to 6 inches deep! Most metal detectors for kids can’t come close to this type of depth. With easy to distinguish audio tone this VLF (very low frequency) metal detector also helps kids zero in on their treasures while leaving behind trash.

Of course with children in mind the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker was designed to be easy to use as well. With a very simple interface and just two dial controls (1. Power/sensitivity and 2. Discrimination also known as Trash Elimination) children can focus on the fun of finding treasure instead of the technical aspects of running their cutting edge metal detector.

Now, let’s take a minute and read through some customer reviews we’ve received from people who have purchased the Junior Treasure Tracker to share the hobby of metal detecting with a child in their lives and see what they have to say about the machine.

D Keenan wrote These guys [Metaldetector.com] know their stuff and are a huge help deciding what is the best deal and product. I bought the Bounty Hunter Jr and an adult metal detector. Great family fun for Granddaughter and Grandson. Thank you!!

Picture of the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker Metal Detector controls

One of the reasons why the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker metal detector is popular with kids is due to the controls being so easy to use.

Katie S writes – I bought 2 metal detectors for 2 of my grandsons, ages 4 and 6. They had been going on “treasure adventures” with their Dad for several months before getting these. Having their own has just made the adventure that much better ….

Scott B shares – I got this for my 6 year old daughter. I cannot believe how well it works. She is finding all kinds of stuff. I even used it to find a lost key ring and it found it ….

Parents and kids alike are happy with the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker. So, if you’re looking for a kids metal detector, be sure to fully review the Junior Treasure Tracker before making your purchase. While children’s metal detectors need to be easy to use and small, they don’t have to sacrifice quality to provide these other features. The Junior Treasure Tracker has combined an excellent machine into a child’s sized package for a complete kids metal detector that’s fun to use and actually finds a lot of treasure!

Then you’ll see the difference between those other metal detectors for children and the Bounty Hunter Junior Treasure Tracker!

Digging and Retrieval of Coins with Metal Detectors

Digging and Retrieval of Coins

Michael Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com is above metal detecting with the the Lesche digging trowel says "When trying to find buried coins, having the right tools will make it easier to find and retrieve them."

Once your metal detector has given you a strong signal and you’ve located a coin or something more valuable, how do you dig it up without damaging your find? Expert coin hunters give much advice on the safe retrieval of coins and interestingly, it’s all different. They say it depends on the kind of turf you’re digging. Each type of soil can require a different digging and retrieval method. Recovering coins from the beach may be easy, but digging coins from hard-packed clay is much more difficult.

Michael Bernzweig of MetalDetector.com said “Garrett Metal Detectors are one of the most popular brands for locating coins and valuables.” He went on to say “If you are looking for our top metal detectors for sale be sure to check out our top 10 list.”

For recovering coins on the beach, many people use two tools—a wire mesh or stainless steel sand scoop sifter and a small trowel. When they have pinpointed a metallic object with their detector, they scoop through the sand with a sifter. If the sand is loose and fine, the object may be in the sifter. However, if the coin is in wet sand near the water, it’s time for the trowel. After pinpointing, a detectorist will insert his/her trowel several inches into the beach sand and with one quick twist, remove the clump of sand. Hopefully, the coin will be at hand. Otherwise, keep digging with the trowel. It’s important to use tools for beach retrieval because you may encounter broken glass.

Other Methods for Probing and Retrieval

Some coin hunting experts like to use knives when retrieving their finds. They cut a plug of grass about three inches deep. When folding the turf back, the coin is usually in the plug of dirt. If not, you can remove a second and deeper plug. You can use a pinpointing metal detector to locate the target within the hole. After retrieving the valuable, you can fold the turf back into place and secure it. A stainless steel digging trowel is a great way to retrieve your target. Treasure digging trowels have marks to gauge the depth of a hole and they help to avoid marring coins while digging. You can shop for Digging Tools, Pinpointing Probes and Metal Detector Accessories at MetalDetector.com

When you click on the Browse Shop tab in the top navigation, you’ll see the Shop Accessories category. There are subheads for each accessory category, making it easy for you to locate what you’re shopping for. You can even find digging kits, such as the Garrett Treasure Digger Kit, which comes with a pouch, probe and trowel. Shop by Features or even do side-by-side comparisons by adding two products to review.

Types of Retrieval Equipment for Metal Detecting

Among the useful tools that you will need for locating and recovering coins are a knife such as the Lesche Digging Tool, stainless steel trowels, pinpointer and some type of apron or pouch. Electronic Pinpointer metal detectors are considered a gem among retrieval tools for many coin hunters. Electronic pinpointers help speed up recovery while adding extreme accuracy. The most popular model on the market today is the Garrett Pro-Pointer. Knives are essential for cutting plugs; metal detecting knives allow you to be exact, precise and quick. Trowels specifically designed for this hobby are typically made of hardened stainless steel. They come in many sizes to adapt to your needs.
