Deep Foreign coins at the beach

I was late for the Low tide this morning so I chose this beach as it is relatively close to home. Can you guess where it is?


The water was already over where I would have preferred to search so I decided to take it easy and just enjoy the surroundings. and be happy with whatever I found. Starting near the water I  dug heaps of bottle tops and tear tabs hoping to fluke a ring or two but without any success except for a couple of sinkers and pieces of bling. Eventually I ended up against the cliff where the E Trac started picking up deep mid to low tone signals that I thought may be foil but of course hoped for much better. I dug a couple which were both small foreign coins at about 40cm deep. Then another, and another. Ended up with 17 coins, mostly foreign, all at a similar depth from a smal area of about 3 square metres. The oldest is 1973 and the newest 2007. This is the small patch that kept me digging 17 holes. Other beachgoer's must have thought I was a bit loopy.


Note all holes filled. :-) Here are the finds. Nothing of value just an unusual mix.


From the top:
NZ coins:      1 x 20c and 5 x10c
Australian:     6 x 5c
Singapore:     2 x 20c and 1 x 10c
India:            1 x 50 Paise and 1 x 25 Paise.

Weird eh.

Anyone know what the round lead thingy on the bottom row is?

That was my Fathers Day hunt 2013.
