Thanks fellas, yeah the beaches have been getting quite packed lately, plenty of tourists around too. Wish they'd lose more gold jewellery though. smile

I recon I should just go there with partially cleaned coins. Would they count correctly?

I'm pretty sure they do. I always give my coins a wash in water to get any dirt or sand off them but don't do any further cleaning. I get a few rejects from the coin counter but not too many. The counted results seem to be pretty consistant, usually between $900 and $1000 from a mostly full ice cream container.

Hit Queenscliff beach yesterday and scored a few coins, there's never usually that much up that end of Manly though did manage to get a sixpence, ended up with about $15. Hit South Curl Curl this morning, dunno why, I breally hate detectimng that beach but hadn't been there for a while. There's a lot of concrete structure under the sand that is obviously full of steel and the CTX just goes crazy over it. Anyway I flogged along that beach for an hour or so and only managed to get about 4 bucks, then got a tiny gold coloured ring, not sure if it's gold, probably just plated, then a few feet away got a chunky 10g silver ring. Weird that there were no other rings on the whole beach then bang, two rings nearly together...

Also got a bottle opener ring. big_smile

Then got home and after lunch the postie arrived with one of my birthday presents from my mum, a $5 silver coin commemorating the battle of Beersheba which is pretty cool as one of our relatives commanded 3 Lighthorse regiments at various times during WW1.

Bugger it, I'm claiming the small ring as gold, it's got a very very worn hallmark on it and it's not plated as I gave one edge a good rub on a ceramic tile, the streak test is golden and there is no colour change under the surface, seems golden all the way through.

It's only 0.7g but the CTX picked it up at about 15cm deep no worries.
