Way smaller, believe the smallest minted US coinage. You can set a half dime on a time, then a Trime and then the gold coin and see parts of all 4 coins.Awesome coin. Drooling here.
Are those smaller than a dime ?
I remember reading they'll ring like iron at any depth.
Good statement jim tn. Could also boil down to that fact that Leprechauns have beaten most to the punch.One of the problems for recovering gold coins is most don't fall into the tid range of other coins one is prone to dig. On a F 75 as an example, a $1. god coin has a 24-26 reading. A $2.5 reads 40-42 and the $5. reads 52, a $10. 61 and the $20. a 69-70.
Typically two types of hunters would dig those numbers, beach hunters and relic hunters. I spent one winter some years ago now woods hunting and digging those numbers with my F 75. Did make a few interesting recoveries, but no gold coin. And I would be shocked to learn there wasn't a couple hiding on the site. Good luck, all. HH jim tn
Well, there could be something said for that, T-DUB, but on this particular woods, although part of a old park, there were just to many other old coins and jewelry being recovered to believe the Leprechauns got all the gold coins. Certainly gold coins weren't lost near the numbers of cents and silver coins, but enough does get found for us to have hope, anyway. Have a goodie!

Awesome, thanks for sharing!
On the Etrac, yes it was in the low range, below nickels. Supposed to have been 12 - 8/10, this one had a nail in the hole, was bouncing 12-18 and 6-12 if I recall but was constant all the way around 360 degrees. I was detecting in a field so I dug it.Do they ring low ? Like iron. Especially at depth.
Wonderful old gold. Thanks for sharing this amazing find.My only one gold coin was a gold gulden from Hungary, hammered around 1365, found on a field in North East Germany, which does deliver no finds at all. (Maybe the value of all those missing finds was compressed in that one coin.)
