Out today with a mate, not expecting much till this little beauty turned up. 6400 Reis of King Josephus of Portugal 1755. Minted in Brazil. Large coin of 3cms and weighs over 0.4 Troy ounces. It looks silver in the pics but i assure you that it is gold.

Is this a joke?! Two gold coins found in one day! I feel like Allen Funt is going to jump out with a camera, lol. You found this today, Steve? That is an AMAZING find Yes What was the mintage on something like that? I'm going to look in my red book, though I highly doubt it's in there.

Depth, VDI, etc. please? You can't simply post a gold coin...from the 1700's no less...and be so nonchalant about it. We want details!!! Wink

And yes, that's going on the banner too! Congrats Yes

Sorry Joe. On pasture, 9 inches down. Using Deus, reading 96 which i thought was deep iron. Programme 2 GM power with tracking. Minted in Brazil hence the R over the date. If there wasn't a letter over the date then it was minted in Portugal
