Searching for things with metal detectors has been a hobby among amateurs and professionals alike since its development in the 1920s because there’s really no telling what you might find.
The Boot of Cortez
Even though deserts look barren, they might be rich in valuable metals such as one lucky metal detectorist discovered in 1989.
If you’re looking for more inspiration, here’s another story of a guy that bought a random metal detector and hit the jackpot. One day, a 35-year-old man named Dave Booth bought a metal detector.
Antique Gold Chalice
Next time you head out to the beach, you might want to bring along a metal detector. In 2008, a man named Mike DeMar was searching for treasure along the coast of Key West when he struck gold.
You don’t necessarily have to head to the beach or spend hours in the scorching desert to find some great treasures. One man found everything he’d been looking for right in his own backyard.
Speaking of finding things in your backyard, that might not be the best spot to hide your stolen cash...
Sometimes, your hobbies make you rich...like Cliff Bradshaw. In 2001, Cliff, a retired electrician, had always loved archeology and metal detecting, so he decided to make a hobby out of it. One day, while he was scanning a field in East Kent, England, he found a crumpled up piece of metal.
Sometimes when you’re digging up ancient artifacts, you’re bound to find the unexpected. Metal detectorists, Dave Derby and Alan Standish, were scanning a site that was known to yield valuable artifacts in Nether Heyford.
What’s better than finding a skeleton from the Roman era? Finding their stash of cash, of course. In 2009, thirty-year-old newbie metal detectorist Nick Davies was on his first metal detecting adventure, looking for hidden gems in Shropshire, when his metal detector started beeping.
If you ever dabble with metal detecting, don’t be discouraged if you don’t find something within your first few tries. Finding something of value on your first excursion is almost unheard of, and fortunately for Steve Hickling, he never gave up.
Who says you have to be an adult….or even enrolled in kindergarten….to be able to find valuables with a metal detector? Four-year-old James Hyatt and his father were in a field located in Hockley hunting for treasure with their metal detector when they unearthed the find of a lifetime.
It’s true that you’ll never know what’s below the surface of the Earth unless you look! Have you ever found anything valuable using a metal detector? Do you know of any other great metal detector finds that aren’t on our list?

If you find a gold treasure on someone's land and take it to a museum for a valuation they will have to report it to the treasury. in turn the treasury will want to find out where it was found. This will lead to your first problem, trespassing, and theft. the item will belong to the land owner...and it's his right to claim the reward if classed as treasure trove...you will get zilch !!
So if you have found gold on someone's land, re-bury it, then go to the land owner and ask for permission to detect on his land. then after a day or so, find the item again, and report it to the land owner. then go to the treasury and get it valued. if it's treasure trove you are forced to sell it to the nations museum and they will pay the value to you. you cannot keep it, but then as its value has to be shared between the land owner and the finder, that would cost a fortune to buy out the other partie to be able to keep the item if it was not classed as treasure trouve. so you will have to sell it anyway..so you might just as well inform the treasury and do it properly. when getting a "permission" from a land owner, do it right and get a signed paper that says you will remove any rubbish, return any tractor fittings found and share fifty fifty and valued items. Say you find a rolex watch..have it valued, say 2000 quid then either of you can buy out the other and keep the item legally or sell it and split the cash..and with a contract you will have the land owners adresse, contact tel numbers and email at hand if you need to extend the period or renew the permission...happy hunting.
First off, in England you have to split treasure with landowner 50/50, that’s probably more like a Brinze axe head from the Bronze Age, and there are loads of those axes found, there are WAY better finds out there than these! Yes the Staf hoard is best on here only with nugget,, you’d think if your going take the time to make a video of this type you’d ask an expert or do a little more research! But then again, 90% of all videos on here are junk thrown together by teenagers so..
yer was gonna say that meself.The saxon hoard was on a farmers land not in his back garden, the farmer didnt really like terry, so sent him on a field were p
eople had already searched it thinking he woudnt find anything lol, i would hate to be them that had already been on the field and didnt find anything must have nightmares to this day thinking what they were walking over lolz
One time when my friends and I were looking with our detectors in a park in Phx. in the bad part of town a woman started SCREAMING my baby, my baby someone help me he chocking. The woman was holding the baby by now but we went running over to her. My friend who was a paramedic layed down his expensive Whites gold finder and went running over to her. Just as we got to the woman she said I got it, he had a piece of hard candy that he got ahold of and was chocking on it. With everything ok we went back to looking for more coins, Or I guess I can say I did as he no longer had his detector. In all this mess someone grabbed his. We all positive that the woman was part of the plan. The cops said the same thing. Never fall for what we did.
That’s bullshit how a country can make laws saying they have the rights to whatever you find. Fuck off, this stuffs been sitting there for hundreds/thousands of years and now you take people’s good luck and screw them over.
I hate the stories of a novice buying a cheap detector and then finding a huge score on his first day. I bought one of the most expensive detectors and have been hunting for years but have never found anything but people's garbage.
Hmmm so much for research. The two biggest nuggets in the world were found 50 kilometres from where I am sitting now in Victoria Australia. One was found with a metal detector- 'the hand of faith' which was sold to the Golden Nugget casino in Vegas and the biggest ever found was the 'Welcome Stranger' found in the 1800's a few kilometers east of the other find. It weighed in at 3,123 oz. The biggest nuggets in the world have all been found in Australia. Big nuggets still turn up every year.
In UK all finds are the property of the landowner usually shared 50/50 with finder but depends upon individual arrangements. So the Hyatt's almost certainly were only entitled to 1/2 of the find at most! Doing some research before posting this video would have been a good idea
All of these fines are the exception to rule and what I tell them that are looking at starting to metal detecting. I been metal detecting for well over 30 years and fines like this do happen but very rarely. A normal day out for me will net maybe enough for a soda on when home or if I'm real lucky a cheap hamburger but more then not I will go in the hole after paying for gas and batteries. Don't get your hopes up and just enjoy the hobby and if you do fine something great then that's icing on cake.
Nothing beats the Amazing surprises that can be found under the ground, These are some great examples, Gold rings and Gold nuggets are to be also found all over the world 🖐🏻Hello from Australia and thankyou for sharing the info 🙂
jimmythesaint nope, bronze age axe heads are actually relatively common in amazing find terms, while being worth a cool £3-10 thousand this one really doesnt keep up to the others on the list, probably about 1 in 50 detectorists here in the UK have found one
My amazing country am sure has many many more wonderful and outstanding finds to be had. If you have permission to dig on land anything of interest to the museum and any rare finds most be handed over to that area finds coordinator, they will log the find or finds and then they will go to the museum to be appraised. They tell you what it is and how much it would be worth? If the Museum has nothing like it inn the collection then they will offer the finds a fee, or if it goes to auction then they do have to split the money with the land owner. The Museum only have so much money to buy the finds and sometimes they hope that the finder will let them have it on loan in the museum. Very sad if part of our history goes into auction and is never seen again 😞
You could not be more wrong if you tried
(1)Anything over 300yrs old and at least a minimum 10%Gold or Silver is classed as treasure trove.
(2)Finds can be handed to a finds liaison officer,or museum or even the Police.
(3)An inquest is then led by the CORONER who determines whether the find constitutes treasure or not.
(4)Finds are NOT appraised by a museum.They are appraised by an independent board of antiquities experts known as the Treasure Valuation Committee.
(5)Non-treasure finds are the remit of the Portable Antiquities Scheme.
Also of interest...The hoard was purchased jointly by the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery for £3.285 million Pounds.You can view the hoard at the above mentioned building.
And sadly the owner of the land and the finder of the treasure are no longer friends.They fell out because the detectorist found even more treasure from the same spot in the following years,and the farmer wanted it all for himself.Treasure like Religion makes good people into fucking idiots.
this video is so wrong the Saxon hoard was found on another guys land that he asked for permission to hunt , if you're gonna make a video get your shirt right and don't make up your own stories no wonder only 30 views ,
DO NOT SUB. TO THIS CHANNEL WASTE OF TIME
When Macmillan talked about the wind of change, he was referring to the desire of African nations for their independence. But he might just as easily have been talking about education in England, where many concerns - about the extent of underprivilege, the need for a more child-centred style of education in primary schools, the unfairness of the selective tripartite system of secondary schools, and wider access to higher education - were now reaching a climax.
Tory education policy.
In his book The Making of Tory Education Policy in Post-War Britain 1950-1986 , Christopher Knight argues that in the period between 1950 and 1974 the Conservative Party failed to fashion an educational policy in line with Conservative philosophy (Knight 1990:3).
However, the beginnings of a Tory education policy can be seen, Knight suggests, in One Nation - A Tory Approach to Social Problems , published by the Conservative Political Centre in 1950. It was written by nine members of what became known as the One Nation group of Tory MPs, including Edward Heath, lain Macleod, Angus Maude and Enoch Powell, who were committed to preserving the church schools and the private sector, to defending the tripartite system, and to opposing what they saw as the enforced uniformity of comprehensive education.
In his contribution to One Nation , Maude wrote: The modern insistence on humanising teaching methods . must not be made an excuse for abandoning the traditional disciplines of learning . We deplore the present tendency to drag down the brighter children to the level of the dull ones (quoted in Knight 1990:12-13). It was perhaps unsurprising that the Tories should have spent little effort in developing a coherent education policy in the early 1950s because, when they regained power in 1951, the overwhelming need was for more school places to cope with the rapidly rising birth rate. Oversize classes (forty or more pupils) and inadequate buildings were the dominant issues for politicians, civil servants and parents alike . A wider vision of schooling was not yet developed
