Bondi Beach - where it all began
I’ve surfed since I was a kid and when there’s no surf I still like to get in the water. My interest in treasure hunting began one Bondi summer when the surf was small, with no waves I decided to jump in for a snorkel along the rocks at what is not one of my treasure hot spots!
Turns out the penny was worthless but learning more about old coins is just a tiny part of the world that has opened up since I started this new hobby.
I soon bought my first Metal Detector; a Minelab Excalibur 2. Getting ready to use it in the water for first time, I had dollar signs in my eyes thinking about all the money and jewellery I was going to find.
After around 5 minutes in the water my excitement ran out, I had no clue how to use the a metal detector and had just realised just how much trash was in the water, lead sinkers, coke cans, bottle tops you…you get the picture.
