Sorry for putting this message up again, I will get it right yet.
The coin is a full sovereign of 1855 containing 8gms 22 carat gold which was found on a local beach when the sand was washed out by the winter gales, it was only in about 4in of sand. I use the Wader as there is a small river and lots of rock pools so I feel safer having a waterproof detector.

Thanks all at least none of you said that I had bought it, as some people commented over here, as though I would buy a coin worth minimum of

Just had a look there were 8.4 million of these coins minted so there may be still a few to be found.

Hi!
I didn't even have to scoop, it was in about 4in sand on the rocks as I was sweeping the coil as I was going back to the car, so never give up until you hit tarmac
