During the past 10,000 years, gold has been the hardest currency of all. And it’s within just the last 200 years that people invented modern paper currency. Has it been good? Certainly not.

Notice how the unit running at 15 kHz is detecting the coin. How often do you hear such signals while hunting? It’s the real classic of not diggable audio response! Continue reading
