WINNER #1
Congratulations to this month’s Apex Top Finds contest winner Harry M. from the United Kingdom!

Harry shares, “On my second outing with my new shiny Apex I hit a lucky steal. Let me just say this first; the Apex is absolutely amazing and a real coin magnet! On only my second outing I found a Charles the 2nd 1685 super scarce and rare tin farthing, followed by two Roman coins, and to top it off, an Edward the 1st silver hammered coin, all in one hunt! The Apex is so simple and yet so effective – 100% best machine I’ve used and I’ve used a lot. That is my story of my Apex so far. I’ve got some great land so I’m sure you’ll hear from me again!”

WINNER #1
“I was out detecting using my new Garrett Apex at a “hunted out” city park that once was a Civil War training camp. I was digging every signal because you just never know what you can find. While digging every bottle cap, pull tab, and soda can along an old cobblestone road, I got a solid 87 VDI on my Apex. I dug down about 6 inches and what looked like a typical piece of shiny round can slaw turned out to be the biggest/heaviest piece of silver I’ve ever had the pleasure to dig, weighing in at 1.85 ounces of sterling silver.

After researching the hallmarks, I learned it was a sterling silver cane topper made between 1830-1865 in London. How it ended up in the woods along the side of an old road in a park is beyond me. I like to think of little scenarios of how it came to rest there for me to find 150+ years later. It’s the amazing and unique historical items I find that drive me to keep rescuing history one hole at a time. Glad to always have my Garrett products to help me save history!”

Congrats to Brandon D. of Pekin, IL for being selected as the Apex Best Finds winner for the month.

What started as a slow day ended up being Nathan's best detecting day yet with his ACE Apex! He was approached on the beach and asked to search for missing jewelry. He was happy to help and found the missing ring! Without expecting it, the family kindly rewarded him. Nathan kept detecting and found another ring that was a moissanite 10k white gold ring.

Congrats to Randy V. of Pennsylvania for being selected as the Apex Best Finds winner for the month.

He submitted this photo of his oldest and most rare coin find, a 1793 Flowing Hair Chain large cent. “I had been hunting for approximately three hours and was working my way back to the car,” Randy said. “I got a quarter signal and dug that. Then, I made three more swings and got a strong signal again.” His last target, pulled from about seven inches deep, was this 1793 American large cent.

Congrats to our April Apex Top Finds Competition winner, Steven C.


Steven shares, “I bought an Apex primarily for the beach. I got a solid 70-75 indication on the screen, so I started digging, thinking it would just be another tin can. After nearly two feet of digging, I saw the small corner of what seemed to be a belt buckle. Once out of the ground, I cleaned it up and it was inscribed with “North Tripperary Militia”. To my surprise, it was from a county in Ireland that was nearly 200 miles from where I found it. After some research, the buckle made its way up north because the militia had been sent to put down the Irish rebellions from 1798 and 1803. A great and historical find.”

WINNER #1
Congrats to our March Apex Top Finds Competition winner, Timothy H.

He found this 1897 Tennessee Centennial token while hunting on family property near Fredericksburg, Virginia. “I got a nice, strong signal in the woods on the property and was surprised to dig what looked like a large coin,” he said.

Designed by the United States mint in 1897, these gold-plated brass commemorative souvenir medals were struck in the U.S. Mint’s exhibit booth in Nashville during the international exposition. “I have found many other neat relics with my Apex since purchasing it, and I’m very pleased with it,” Timothy added. “Great machine!”
