When Bounty Hunter introduced the Gold and Platinum metal detectors, we realized that they had just made available two detectors that would open up the hobby to many new treasure hunters. The Bounty Hunter Gold model is not only simple to operate, but it is one of the most flexible detectors that we have seen in a while. This unit will help you locate the oldest and deepest coins, rings, jewelry and relics. One metal detector that finds it all! The Bounty Hunter Gold is great for both the first time treasure hunter and as a backup unit for advanced or professional detectorists. You can turn it on and start treasure hunting right away; or use the advanced features to customize this detector for your type of treasure hunting.
When we heard the Bounty Hunter factory was only producing a limited number of these metal detectors in time for the season, we stepped up and bought out the entire production run. We also negotiated a special package of metal detecting accessories, just for our customers. These detectors are available with this promotional package while supplies last. Compare this offer and we are sure you will agree that this is a great value!
Hunt for hours without fatigue. This is one lightweight, fully featured metal detector that lets you do it all! Now you can hunt for hours at the beach, parks, old home sites, school yards or in the woods. Discover the oldest and deepest coins, rings, jewelry and relics with the Bounty Hunter Gold. This is Bounty Hunters' premium entry level metal detector. The detector features both audio and visual target identification, custom modes, depth reading and a jumbo LCD display screen. The Gold does not include a ground balance adjustment to eliminate the effects of minerals at the beach. If you plan to hunt at the wet parts of a salt beach, we suggest upgrading to the Bounty Hunter Platinum model.
The Bounty Hunter Gold was designed under the direction of Dave Johnson, Chief Designer for First Texas Products. Dave is one of the top engineers in the metal detecting industry. He has designed leading-edge metal detectors for American manufacturers for over 25 years. The Bounty Hunter Gold is one of his latest accomplishments for the Bounty Hunter brand. Many of his design platforms are the backbone of several companies high end product offerings today. Pictured below, you can see that the engineering team works hard and plays hard.
The Bounty Hunter Gold features a large, easy to read display screen that will identify the target before you dig it! The display is easy to read outdoors and measures a full 3 inches by two inches. The display will identify common targets such as iron, foil, nickels, aluminum, pennies, dimes quarters, half dollars etc. The Gold will also show the target depth in inches. The advanced identification features found on this detector will help you dig less trash and find more treasures. Make the most of your time in the field with the Bounty Hunter Gold.
Bounty Hunter engineers started with a blank slate when they introduced the Bounty Hunter Gold. The Bounty Hunter Gold model is feature-packed yet offers turn on and go simplicity. This model features a discriminate mode. At the push of a button, you can adjust the sensitivity and volume of the detector. This metal detector sets a new standard for ease of use and value. Feature for feature, this model goes far beyond the competition. The Bounty Hunter Gold is lightweight, well constructed and deep seeking. This detector is easy to use and features intuitive, easy to understand controls. The Bounty Hunter Gold metal detector is great for both kids and adults alike.
Discrimination Mode - This mode is the default mode and is the mode most commonly used for continuous searching. Like most modern metal detectors, it requires the searchcoil to be in motion in order to detect and identify targets. In this mode, targets are identified with distinct tones, and are classified in categories at the bottom of the display. All menu items can be selected, customized or changed in this mode. The discrimination mode is a cumulative elimination system. Targets can be eliminated from left to right on the scale.
Notch Discimination Mode - In this mode, the user can selectively eliminate individual targets. While the Discrimination Mode eliminates all categories sequentially from detection; the Notch control allows you to selectively include or exclude individual target categories from detection.
Sensitivity Control - Increase or decrease the sensitivity of the detector at the touch of a button. Sensitivty on a metal detector is also known as depth. The sensitivity control helps you to fine tune the detector for the best operation.
Volume Control - Change the detector speaker volume at the touch of a button.

No matter how you look at it, the Bounty Hunter Gold offers the best quality, price and features at this price point. To top it off, the detector is backed by a full 5 year warranty.
The Bounty Hunter Gold detector features a cutting edge concentric search coil design. The triple spoke design punches down deep and cuts through iron and aluminum trash. The concentric coil winding produces smooth operation for all types of treasure hunting. The search coil is waterproof and features an 8" diameter... a perfect balance between depth and sensitivity. Experience powerful, deep target detection and easy pinpointing.
The Bounty Hunter Gold concentric search coil is engineered with both an inner circle and an outer circle wire winding. The search pattern produced is cone shaped and is excellent for accurately pinpointing targets with ease. This Bounty Hunter search coil includes the latest technology and is waterproof and electro statically shielded. In general, larger search coils will give better depth on larger targets and also more ground coverage. However, sensitivity to smaller objects may be sacrificed. Smaller search coils will offer greater sensitivity to smaller objects and improved target separation in trashy soil. This coil offers the perfect balance of depth and sensitivity.
While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen is very accurate in identifying buried objects, the user in the field does not always maintain the display screen in their field of vision. Therefore, an audio tone system is included to alert the user to the nature of buried objects. This audio tone system first alerts the user to the presence and classification of objects, whose nature and location can be confirmed using the LCD display. The detector can sound three different tones, depending on the object detected.
The Bounty Hunter Gold metal detector includes a numerical category target id system. The unit has a 3 tone audio target identification and 6 levels of discrimination. Targets are identified by category. A single discrimination notch is selectable by category. You can adjust the sensitivity to reduce interface from power lines and enhance your target depth. This model includes a battery life indicator, an intuitive menu system and numerical depth readout. You can hunt in either the discrimination mode or use the all metals motion mode. The ground balance for this unit is preset. This unit is excellent for coin and relic hunting but not designed for beach hunting. The design of this model includes an adjustable stem, a rubber-button control interface locking ring coil connector, an optional arm strap (not included), and a padded arm rest with a comfort hand-grip.
