You might find rare U.S. coins, foreign coins, ancient pieces… or, um, common coins worth nothing over face value.

Of course, keeping your eyes peeled for old coins buried in the dirt, at the beach, under water, or in the basement of the vacant house next door may have some legal pitfalls. You should always heed local, state, and federal laws regarding the searching for and keeping of anything you find.

Know the rules where you want to dig and search!

But assuming you know all the laws, rules, and unspoken agreements you should always abide by when doing some treasure hunting, it’s time to go for the search!

One of the best ways to look for old coins and other treasures worthy of searching for is by using a metal detector. Metal detectors are a treasure hunter’s best friend and make swift work of finding the buried loot you’re hoping to lay your eyes on!
