Metal Detectors are for Everyone.
Metal detecting is the perfect hobby for outdoor enthusiasts, history buffs, beach combers, treasure hunters, amateur archaeologists, relic and coin collectors, and bargain hunters both young and old. Popular with people both young and old, metal detecting gives anyone the opportunity to get outdoors and hold history in the palm of their hand. However, there is one similarity among all metal detectorists; they love to find rare and valuable coins, jewelry and relics!
What Kind of Metal Detectors are Available?
Looking at the vast selection of metal detectors can be overwhelming but rest assured that the perfect machine for you is out there! Basic metal detectors are literally "turn on and go," while more complicated detectors have seemingly endless adjustable features.
All-purpose metal detectors are the most popular, versatile, and easy to operate. But there are metal detectors specifically made to find gold, go to depths of 200ft. underwater, or search specifically for relics and caches. What one person considers the "best" may not be the best for you.
This is why reviews are so important – learn from the experiences shared by others.
