Coin Hunting with Fisher F44 Metal Detector

I like to switch things up every now and then, and that’s why recently I decided to do some coin shooting with the Fisher F44.

I met up with a friend at a local park, and we detected around some baseball diamonds. There was penny tones everywhere, but as most of you know, rings can sound like pennies, so given where I was, I dug all penny tones.

They all turned out to be pennies, but hey, one could have been a ring, right? The best find of the day was the “Fossil” watch which was actually down about 8 inches deep…but, the F44 had no problem hitting on it!

What can I say? The Fisher F44 Metal Detector is a great coin shooter! It locks onto coins well, and pinpointing with the 11 inch triangular elliptical coil is surprisingly easy!


As you can see, I found several coins on that hunt, and while none were silver I am confident that had a silver been there the F44 would have found it.

Some would say “Why even bother making a post about finding pocket change?”

Two Reasons:

I set out with the Fisher F44 to find coins, and found many coins with it…And, because THIS is the reality of metal detecting. It isn’t all gold and silver finds, more often than not this is a prime example of what you can really expect from the average metal detecting hunt.

Continuing that theme, here is a picture of the junk targets I also dug that day. I knew that most of these targets were probably not coins before I dug them, but that’s just how it goes… You’re going to dig some junk targets every outing, that’s just part of metal detecting.


Also, this image shows that as detectorists, we are cleaning the environment a heck of a lot more than we are damaging it. We do our part to clean up the places that we metal detect.

It’s what we do. Proudly.

All in all, this was a fun hunt with a good friend and the Fisher F44 metal detector found several coins. It did what it was asked to do, and you can’t ask for any more than that!
