Got out this arvo for another crack at Goldie Park and although there wasn't a lot of signals to dig Goldie Park still delivered.
The wife, Kiara, Abraham, Aaliyah and Angelica came along for the two hours and had fun in the park on the slides.
All in all a good day and win win situation when you say to the wife, lets take the kiddies to the park. lol

Goldie park well and truly is the park that keeps giving, managed to pull out some more coins and a Pendant....
I deliberately bypassed one section because of the trash/dumping ground of cans in there but managed to pull out the good targets
while cleaning out the bad targets.
I found an old license plate badly damaged but it has only one number and one letter.... (3 M) it's now in the trash/recycling.

Not sure if I will go back to Goldie Park for a while and instead meet up with Detector Dan in the city or me old mate Jim who has a
few parks he does in the city...

Until next time happy detecting everyone.

I wonder what the story is with the dragon pendant? inlove maybe it would be worth discriminating out the can tid's and digging all other signals Art. argh Better than leaving it completely unsearched poop tongue The piece of silver with the hearts has a story too. (insert the thinker emoji) idea

Problem with discriminating out in that park is I know I will be back so cleaning it would be better in the long run.
And also it would mean no more Goldies. sad lol
It's only a small section so no big thing. thumbsup

Yeah mate I've been working it since around this time last year. Decided to see how it replenished and to be honest it hasn't
really as most of the coins are still old with the odd new drop. thumbsup

The first pic of the medallion says "Kung Fu Master" in the characters around the edge,

and the character in the middle of the second pic is the traditional character for "Dragon". The characters around the edge are the same on both sides.

So the difference is that one side has a picture of the dragon, and the other the character for dragon.

As the traditional characters are used, it could come from Taiwan or Japan as well as China.

I suppose it is very unlikely that the owner was really a kung fu master!

Hey thanks for the information DrDuck very much appreciated....

Been a few days since I last posted anything so I thought I'd gather up my finds of the last week and show em off...
Mostly all park digs last week, just the bark areas and a couple of dirt patches...
Today was pretty good down the beach, a few goldies showed up and a nice coin spill of $6 and 2 Foreign Chinese Coins?
But the highlight from today's beach dig was the 1919 6d.....
Kiara and I went to the Park again tonight but I have a feeling the local detectorist in that area has been getting in just on dusk
and cleaning it out....The highlight of tonights dig was a beautiful 1887 3d.....
Looking forward to the next two weeks as it's school holidays, the kiddies have been good so far, well only one day into their two weeks..
Anyway on with the finds...

Hey thanks fellas - School Holidays means more days to dig, a little overcast at the moment today but that never stopped me in the past.

There's a small dump at the 1850s spot where the 1887 3d came from, thing is the 3d was only about 3 inches deep - score. smile thumbsup

No worries, Golddiggerart,

I have no skill in Chinese, but my second daughter is winding up a degree in Chinese and Business at ANU, has been to China a few times, and is pretty good at reading and speaking Chinese. So I sent the pics to her, and she told me what the characters were.

It's pretty good going to a Chinese Restaurant with her, as she orders all the good stuff not on the English menu.

Got out to the beach yesterday with Kiara, the storm pulled a lot of sand off the beach 1 1/2 metres worth gone, beach huts were lucky to survive.
Found a Georgia State Quarter which rang up as a Silver Ring at 42 TID .....At least I got a Silver in the form of a Tree Of Life Earring. smile
Not sure what the copper is, not able to identify anything on it because it is so corroded, was found under one of the beach huts.

Wife and kiddies coming along to enjoy the outdoors. smile
All the best and happy detecting...
