Found Treasure

Panning for gold may be a thing of the past, but you can still get the same thrill of finding treasure through metal detecting. The first crude metal detector was invented in 1881 by Alexander Graham Bell. He used it to try and locate an assassin’s bullet in then-President James Garfield. The first portable detector came into being in 1925 and was sold commercially in 1931. But the hobby really took off in the 1960s as lighter models were developed.

Metal detecting offers young and old alike the opportunity to embrace their inner pirate or archaeologist as they go on a quest for lost treasure. Metal detection-enthusiasts are most often looking for lost coins or jewelry, all items you can Broken Gold™ will pay you for.

Gold was first discovered thousands of years ago in its natural state, in streams, which lead to mining all over the world. Its brilliance, natural beauty, great malleability and resistance to tarnish made it enjoyable to work with. Gold gave rise to the concept of money itself. Today gold is used for jewelry fabrication, industrial application, and medical uses, by governments and central banks and by private investors.
