I'm a retired electrician. I use a Garrett AT Pro, Garrett pinpointer AT, Lesche Digger, and a Home Depot trenching shovel. I'm a newbie detectorist .  I'm presently researching my local area to try to find some old spots to find silver coins .  I do have a problem with cyatic pain from a herniated disk which affects my Detecting ability. So far I'm just putting up with the pain.

Welcome aboard from NE Ohio (Olmsted Falls)! Sciatic pain is a real Bi$%@ ! From my experience, never try putting a 6 cylinder engine block into the back of your pickup truck, (by yourself), if you ever want to stand upright and look at the sky again! Ice packs work real good. Lots of them. But all kidding aside, you have a great machine and the motivation, all you need is the location and some more experience. That money clip is a great start and only the beginning of a long and pleasant journey which will help the pain go away!

Hi, DH. Welcome to the community. If you're looking for silver coins, easiest route to go, without doing much research, would simply be to head to the oldest parks where you live, or any large swath of woods in your roundabout area. Either will give up plenty of old coins if the locations saw activity within the past 50 years or so.

As Cladjunky pointed out, HistoricAerials.com should be bookmarked on your computer, and referenced as often as possible when scouting new locations. It won't tell you if old coins are present at the sites, but will provide a ton of great maps/aerial photos so you can decide if a location holds potential, or if it's likely gonna be a dud.

Main thing in the beginning is, hunt as often as you can, and dig as much as you can, so the routine becomes second nature and you learn the in's & out's of your machine.

Good luck on your journey Yes

Welcome from SE Michigan . You have great equipment all you need is to put the time in learning it. 
   The old parks are a great idea and if you are digging good plugs try door knocking at some older houses. It can be a bit intimidating at first , but if you can get onto ground no one else has detected before you might make some great discoveries.
