But I'm thinking that I could put a small coil on this spectacular unit & coin shoot with it lol. What's you guys opinion on that?

I mean it's the deepest metal detector I've ever used. Put a small coil on it & look out at old beaten spots.im not a coin shooter but like old coins.

With no discrimination on a GPX you will be digging lots of deeeeep holes for all metal items !!! LoL

The GPX has discrimination.... and once your ear is trained its very effective.

I have been using it to find small coins for years, although I hardly ever use a very small coil. But then, I detect on farm land and not a Park environment.

It sure does have discrimination. It's all in the sound. I hardly dig any iron now.

Lighten up Digger !Take a deep breath and relax ! I sent you a reply to your PM to me explaining I was not in the know that a GPX could truly discriminate out metals (make them silent) like other detectors. I even gave info on the TDI sight that completely ignore iron and pull tabs. If name calling is your how you react to a post, well then figure out things on your own.

I hunted a site that had colonial, civil war, and modern 1900's occupation and dumping. I never coin shoot but pulled out 2 V- nickels, a seated half dime, and a nice tombac button amongst the trash. Modern items like aluminum blow my ears off. Foil can be tough depending on size and depth. I've had guys ask me to check a good signal with the GPX and most times I'll correctly identify it as modern trash.

Cool buddy. I was thinking that it discriminates iron. It tells the difference in conductivity. So why wouldn't it dig deep coins?

I'm busy pounding on civil war spots with it. I'll get to messing around with coins when I find them. I have found a couple in civil war spots.
