Treasure! Coin and relic hunting has come of age. No longer is treasure hunting the realm of the get-rich-quick fringe and the bad reputation associated with the destruction of historic sites. Metal detectors are now recognised as sophisticated detection tools that can distinguish precious metals from surrounding soils and rubbish. This ensures minimum disturbance to the search area. This guide has been designed to enable you to identify your finds and put them into context within Australia's evolving history. We describe the specialist metal detectors which will help to detect valuable coins and jewellery among the junk strewn fields. We'll also show you how to identify prospective areas to coin and relic hunt and interpret the signs of previous human occupation. We describe the special techniques required to unearth your find. It is imperative that the target is not damaged while digging it out of the ground and the surrounding area is not scarred in the process. This is especially important when detecting in public parks and beaches. We also describe the specialist tools and electronic pin-pointing devices that will assist in both the park and beach. This guide covers: Man-made or natural targets, How metal detectors work, Detector operation technique, Specialised tools for coin & relic extraction, Choosing a treasure hunting detector, Where to treasure hunt, Research, Themes to stimulate your search, The law of finding, Identifying your finds, Displaying your finds, Treasure hunts & ethics,
