Morning hunt got the worm

First hunt since the plague struck pretty stoked with a 1871 Sydney mint half sov

Can’t fault that! Was hoping it was a key date though.

I’m slowly working my way through the years :sunglasses:

Shouts all around - and me is jellyarse. Fantastic find…bloody marvellous!

Awesome find. Looks to be in great condition. Congrats. :+1: Hands down beats the three bits of gold I found detecting yesterday. One piece just over 1 gram. Good luck out there

I’m interested how you guys do that… Do you wade in the river

Good result! Was it from a spot that you’d consider busy with past trade / activity or just a random lucky spot?

You lucky bugger Chris. One of those moment you won’t forget.
Congrats
