Relic and coin hunt with a 4000

Use a DD coil, with the iron reject on. The GPX 4000 is not ideal for coins... Although I use mine on the beach a lot, no discriminating LOL :) BUT I have dug quite a lot of coins now, and I can usually tell by the volume from the target, and the area that it covers, whether it is a coin or not... It goes very deep, I have dug coins at about a metre deep in sands.

THe conly detector I have used is the 4000, so this is speculation, but I'd say that you would be best only using it in areas that are either historical ( Like the people in UK hunting for Roman coins) or have a history of producing some good finds, so that you can use your detector to it's advantage - going deep
