A new Single Frequency of 4 kHz has been added to the existing 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 kHz options. This new 4 kHz frequency enhances the detection of large deep targets, particularly those found in parts of Asia. As a result of optimising for these conditions, this new frequency may respond differently for users compared to the other single frequencies. 

All other single and multi-frequency settings are unchanged in their performance.

National Coin Shortage? One Group Has A Solution. 1

In light of the National Coin Shortage of 2020, merchants and consumers are getting creative in order to keep the economy pumping.  There are other groups that are getting creative in order to find a solution to the problem.

Is This The First Time The U.S. Has Had a Coin Shortage?

First, it is important to note that this IS NOT the first time the United States has encountered a coin shortage.  In the post World War II era, coin shortages had been occasionally known but were brief in duration.  Typically they the shortages would affect one of the five denominations (cent, nickel,dime, quarter, and half dollar) that was being minted at the time.  In 1959 the Federal Mint failed to create enough coins for banks that needed them.  At this point, the Fed imposed rationing at its district and branch banks.  Since many of the coins that are distributed to banks from the Federal Reserve are distributed from "flowback"...

“I’m new to the trade but have a serious interest. I’m looking to purchase the AT Pro Sports Pack as well as the Pro-Pointer. Any recommendations or other items I should consider? I’ll mainly be detecting on farm properties for relics and precious metals. Thank you for your assistance.”


Excellent question and good pick on the metal detector. I think the AT Pro is one of the best on the market. It is an excellent machine with a lot of options and is priced affordably. The pin pointer is a must. It is a life saver and pays for itself in time and recovery. I recommend the Garrett Pro Pointer II. It is rugged and works like a charm especially when you learn to dial it in to find treasure (more on that later).

Here are the top recommended detectorist tools in addition to a good metal detector and pinponter and explanations why.
