Jumbo LCD Target Identification Display
The Bounty Hunter Platinum features a large, easy to read display 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, soda can pull tabs, screw caps, pennies dimes quarters etc. The Platinum will also provide a unique target identification number for every target.

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 Platinum.
Features Four Custom Modes
Bounty Hunter engineers started with a clean slate when they introduced the new Bounty Hunter Platinum. The Bounty Hunter Platinum model is feature-packed yet offers turn on and go simplicity. This top model adds four custom programs: A discriminate mode, a pinpoint mode, a ground grab mode and an all metal mode. This metal detector sets a new standard for high end features and value. Feature for feature, this model goes far beyond the competition. The Bounty Hunter Platinum is lightweight, well constructed and deep seeking. This detector is easy to use and features intuitive controls.
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 top of the display. A two-digit numerical value, on a scale of 10 to 99, is displayed in the middle of the screen. The depth range of the target is also displayed at the bottom of the display. All menu items can be selected, customized or changed in this mode.
Pinpoint Mode - Pinpoint is used to find the exact location of a target which was previously located and identified using the discrimination mode. As this mode does not require motion over the target, you can move the coil more slowly and then narrow the detection field when near the target.
Ground Grab Mode - All soils contain minerals. Signals from ground minerals interfere with the signals from metal objects. All soils differ and can differ greatly in the type and amount of ground minerals present. This detector incorporates ground balancing algorithms which eliminate interference caused by the ground minerals found in most soils. The quick and easy to use Ground Grab feature, allows the user to more precisely calibrate the detector's internal circuitry to the specific ground you are searching.
All Metals Mode - This mode is a no-motion mode. Metal targets are detected with the searchcoil motionless over the target. Target identification is not possible in this mode. All metal objects will induce a single monotone hum. The 2-digit value in the middle of the screen represents the approximate target depth, in inches.
Made In the United States - 5 Year Warranty
The Bounty Hunter Platinum is crafted in the USA and is backed with a 5 year parts and labor Warranty. This model features an easy to read jumbo LCD display with digital target identification and depth readings. The Bounty Hunter Platinum features a ground balance adjustment that allows the detector to operate in the toughest, most mineralized soil conditions. There are no complex adjustments or settings to worry about. Just turn it on and go! Start having fun with this model from your first time out. This model will locate coins, rings, gold and relics. Use it at parks or at the beach. No matter how you look at it, the Bounty Hunter Platinum offers the best quality, price and features. To top it off, this model is backed by a full 5 year warranty.
A Deep Seeking Coil Design
The Bounty Hunter Platinum detector model 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.
Understanding the Bounty Hunter Platinum Concentric Search Coil Design:
The Bounty Hunter Platinum concentric 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 with larger targets and better 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.
Four Tone Audio Target Identification System:
While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is very accurate in identifying buried objects, you may not be looking at the screen as you walk over an item. The detector has 4 audio tones and will be your first alert to a buried object. This audio feedback system will first alert you to the presence of an object. Then look to the LCD display screen, to show in vivid details, what you have located. The detector has up to four different tones, depending on the object detected.
Top of The Line Features and Performance
The Bounty Hunter Platinum includes a jumbo 2 digit LCD target readout. A low battery indicator and target depth are displayed on the large LCD display. This model features a no motion ground grab and a push-button pinpoint control. There are four modes of operation. Four tone audio target identification helps you determine what is in the ground before you start digging. A built in sensitivity adjustment and volume control let you get the best depth and audio response possible. This unit includes an overload alarm system. The Bounty Hunter Platinum includes an arm strap, a built in arc stand and a padded arm rest and grip.

Tom (Posted on December 28, 2016)
Light weight, easy to read and adjust, and with all the freebies you guys threw in, this was an incredible deal. Will but again from you! (Posted on October 25, 2015)
I like the way the handle is located vertically to make it more comfortable to swing. My Gamma is about $200 more than the Platinum. They are almost the same, but the platinum has ground grab and mine has only manual ground balance. I got the platinum as a backup for my Gamma, but it might become my favorite. My only concern is the power button that can be easily touched accidently, but that's the same problem I have with the Gamma. I read somewhere that someone put a plastic ring around it so it wouldn't stick out so much. Arturo

The Bounty Hunter Platinum is a metal detector that limits almost all ground garbage which in turn allows you to focus on what’s important, and helps with less digging. So my advice, try the Bounty Hunter Platinum, you won’t be disappointed. (Posted on October 12, 2015)
(Posted on July 1, 2015)
Thanks for a great deal on a great product. I have already referred a few folks who expressed interest in a detector when I told them I bought one. I hope it turns into a sale for you all. Great Company (Posted on May 22, 2015)

I'm having so much fun and the neighbors are really good about letting me search their yards. Service and personal attention has made metaldetector.com my go to company for all future needs. (Posted on October 19, 2014)
The reason for 4 stars for value is because it has not paid for itself in finding buried treasure yet. It's still too hot to be working outside. (Posted on September 4, 2014)
Even before the purchase, suggestions were given to me about how to adjust the sensitivity to better utilize the detector. The folks I talked to were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and pleasant.
I will be going back to MetalDetector.com to purchase accessories after I "experiment" a little more to determine what else I will need for my new hobby.
Don't hesitate to call these folks. You won't regret it!! (Posted on September 2, 2014)
Lastly, the customer support I received is excellent! (Posted on August 24, 2014)
Customer service at metaldetector.com was superb. The representative I spoke with on the phone was helpful and made the overall transaction easy and seamless. This company is the real deal and will get my business in future sales. (Posted on July 11, 2014)
I thought I needed a pinpointer, but I realized there is one on the machine. I will try this feature and let you know. Thanks, looking forward to more beach time. (Posted on June 17, 2014)
This machine is light weight and easy to use for hours at a time. I talked to Moe at the store and he was just great to deal with and great service. If you’re looking for a great machine, look no further, this is it!! (Posted on May 27, 2014)
I recently purchased this metal detector as a gift for my husband. He loves it. He was impressed by the carry bag, also volume control, and the headphones. The first time out in our yard he made a discovery within 10 minutes. He found a brass nozzle for the garden hose. We have a park near our home that holds many events and I'm sure once they get started, he will too after he's done exploring our yard. Great value, great fun, happy husband! (Posted on May 7, 2014)
I have this day ordered the 11 inch search coil which I believe should improve performance. Over all, very happy the wife bought this for my birthday. (Posted on March 31, 2014)
Only been out a couple times since receiving the detector for Christmas and have found 3 rings and about $15 in coins, some as deep as 6 inches. Really impressed with platinum detector! (Posted on March 18, 2014)
Over all I am happy with the unit, just stick to dry soil or sand. (Posted on March 1, 2014)
THANK YOU METALDETECTOR.COM. (Posted on February 25, 2014)
It's lightweight which some would consider to be junk. Let me tell you don't let the light weight fool you, this has all the bells and whistles that anyone could want in a detector.
Out of the box it has impressed me, I went back over my back yard just to see if I could find anything that my other top end detector left behind. I found six pennies, nickel and a Kennedy half dollar dated 1963. The half dollar was 12 " down, I love this detector, you couldn't go wrong keeping one of these in your inventory! (Posted on February 11, 2014)
However after using the platinum machine, the modern technology is obvious. On previously searched ground on the first day out I found pre 1950s pennies and other items that the old machine did not find. The levels of discrimination with the 4 tones is excellent and the depth very good. One of the pennies was at about 9 inches down.
For the price, the machine is excellent.
I would highly recommend this machine to anyone considering this hobby. The machine arrived on time with no damage. Thank you all at MetalDetector.com (Posted on January 5, 2014)
High quality machine with lots of options, four sounds and digital readout of items. Very nice package as well as great delivery and packing job. I love it and can't wait to use it.
Thank You, Glenn
PS Delivered it in three days and that was with free shipping!
(Posted on December 26, 2013)
They were grateful and gave me $200 dollars. I returned their nickle too. (Posted on September 20, 2013)
Your delivery and service were great and it arrived two days before Father's Day!! He has been staying busy using his detector.
Thanks for the great service. (Posted on August 25, 2013)
Well my favorite dinosaur of a detector had to go to the shop yet again for a tune up. My friend let me borrow a Bounty Hunter 3300 [now Legacy 3500], the thing weighed nothing. This thing won't find squat said I! Boy oh boy was I wrong. I dug up plenty of stuff, the learning curve was about 10 minutes and my arm didn't hurt!
The very next day I stopped by the dealer and bought the Bounty Hunter Platinum and I've never looked back! I just purchased an 11 inch DD search coil from Metaldetector.com, price was great, shipping was fast and this coil rocks my machine.
So you old codgers out there still swinging those detector dinosaurs, do your arm and hunting a favor, buy a new light machine. They really, really work and if you're smart, buy it from Metaldetector.com!

Now, for MetalDetector.com and all I can say is I ordered this on a Saturday evening, real late, they opened Monday AM, confirmed my order and I HAD THE THING TUESDAY NOON. OMG Great Service. I have used them for a few detectors in the past and they ALWAYS impress me.
Thanks, Joe (Posted on June 27, 2013)

I did compare the price and it was over $200 cheaper here than elsewhere, plus there were free goods to boot. The product was received on time and MetalDetector.com delivered as promised. (Posted on June 12, 2013)
I have had no false readings, if it sounds off, there is something there. I have found a lot of junk. I have found nails over 4 inches deep. I have also found some good stuff. In my first 4 times out, I have found 2 gold rings and a couple of coins, some old toy cars and a silver butter knife. (Posted on June 12, 2013)
Just a quick two cent review of my recent Bounty Hunter platinum Purchase. First, this is my first metal detector. That being said, I spent a considerable amount of time researching all the makes and models that I thought would serve me best at my entry level. I can tell you that I made the right choice with the Bounty Hunter Platinum.
When I contacted the Metal Detector.com sales associate, he informed me that I was getting intermediate equipment at a beginner price. He was right on the money. I'm very pleased with this detector and the service I received. Shipping was fast, and the communication was real and not misleading. I felt like i was treated like a customer should be. I will be making metal detector.com my home for metal detecting. (Posted on June 5, 2013)
Thanks (Posted on May 8, 2013)
I'm a 20 year detecting veteran. I wanted an easy to use machine with ground balance and reliable discrimination. This machine is the best I've used from an ergonomics and overall ease of use and setup standpoint. We were finding coins 15 minutes after box opened.
Very accurate predictor of what we were digging, very accurate pinpoint and comfortable to detect with.
Thanks a million Dave, you exceeded my expectations from a product and service standpoint. (Posted on May 5, 2013)
I could never have accomplished this without outstanding support of the MetalDetector.com staff, both in selection of and later usage questions after the sale. Such support is outstanding. (Posted on April 13, 2013)
This is the simplest to operate electronic device I have ever owned. I really feel like after 1 hour I got a real grasp of what is under it. The pinpoint is spot on. Fact is, I found first piece of garbage 1 min after starting. I played with it in pinpoint and cut a hole in my lawn, that is still frozen by the way, the size of a drinking glass and it was there. At 7 inches down like it said, I even measured it. Sorry for being long winded but I am sold on this with no buyers remorse what so ever. (Posted on March 27, 2013)
Good digging to all this year. Bob H (Posted on March 27, 2013)
I haven't used it yet but I must admit I am impressed with the quality of the material and workmanship included with this detector. I think I am going to like it a lot. It is so light weight too. (Posted on March 1, 2013)
Although it was 25 degrees and 50 mph winds today, I had to try it out in the yard before the snow arrives tonight. Thirty minutes later I had four quarters, two dimes and one nickel. One quarter is silver. My yard is a treasure chest. Come on warm weather, me and my Bounty Hunter and of course my dog will be will be treasure hunting.
I cannot speak any better about this product and the excellent service from www.metaldetector.com through reviewing, purchase and delivery.
Raymond (Posted on January 31, 2013)
Customer service was also excellent. I had a few questions concerning the proper use of my new metal detector, and was very pleased with the willingness of the staff to help answer my questions. Thank you!! (Posted on December 21, 2012)
I found the sales person at metaldetector.com to be very knowledgeable and helpful in my purchase process.
Rich (Posted on November 2, 2012)
I picked out about a half dozen detectors from different companies, based on my intended use which is primarily a weekend /evening coin, jewelry hobbyist. One desire was to have as much visual info as possible. If a setting wasn't right or a desired notch on or off etc., to me a novice, a visual display is best. That eliminated the Tesoro. All knobs and no display is probably more useful to an experienced detectorist.
When I narrowed it down to price/features/user reviews the Bounty Hunter Platinum stuck out. Bounty Hunter products, in most information I could review, did very well in customer satisfaction. Comparable to Garrett, Fisher, etc. It amazed me that the Teknetics Gamma 6000, a nearly identical machine to the Bounty Hunter Platinum, was so much more expensive. It also got good reviews. Good machine, bad value. Bounty Hunter seems to be targeting the entry to medium level detector market. I believe they are quite successful, as to me that seems to be where most customers are. They have been around awhile.
Now to my review! After reading the directions, I went to my backyard, not with the intent of finding anything, but to get to know the workings of the machine. After successively performing the ground grab function on the first try, and setting the sensitivity to 5, a post 1982 penny was detected at 4 inches on about my tenth sweep. It surprised me! I tried the pinpoint function and it was very accurate. When recovering the find, the depth turned out to be very accurate also. I continued for about fifteen minutes. I found two clad dimes, two more pennies and a nickel; all with accurate depth and target identification.
I have since operated the Platinum for about 6-7 more hours at swimming areas and playgrounds. I have found several dozen clad coins, a Christmas Bell charm with a small diamond striker, and a 10kt gold ring. The suggestions to dig all hits paid! The reading was in the lower range as I had read such items would be. I couldn't be happier! The Platinum has performed better than I even expected as a total novice. The functions work as advertised. Only a couple of times, when encountering abnormally large metallic object, i.e. monkey bars, pipes etc. did it act erratically. As one would expect, when moved away, it immediately calmed down. I encountered a common problem of which I have read in other reviews, when I was pressing the pinpoint button I accidentally turned it off several times. Not a big deal, but something that must be remembered. For a novice like me, I honestly believe the price/performance level of the Platinum is excellent! When my abilities catch up to those of the Platinum, things look promising! The package offered by the MetalDetector.com people was a great value. It included headphones, case, a digging trowel and others for 299.95 with no shipping fee, a great value. (Posted on July 24, 2012)
There are lots of places I’ve randomly searched. Once i was searching a park near an old World War II orphanage. I think I found the old burn pit. There was lots of old broken glass and dishware mixed in with metal bits. After searching it, I left everything in place and reburied it. i hope this helps you get the idea where this machine works well and what you can find with it. About the detector, operating it is a breeze i turn it on. Turn down the sensitivity to 5. Then change the mode to all metal, turn its sensitivity down to 4 or 5. Then hit the menu button that highlights the volume. I then turn the volume down to 4 or 5. I then hit the mode button and I’m now back in discriminate. I swing the coil over some metal and adjust my headphones, now I’m ready to go. It’s a little quicker setting the volume that way rather than scrolling thru the menu and then still having to set the all metal sensitivity.
Overall it’s a great machine its light, has excellent battery life, it's very responsive, lots of times it will get a sniff of something and I have to slow down and find what caused the machine to chatter at me. Make sure to read the manual and pay attention to terms like drift and EMI. Those can be a problem and are not exclusive to the Platinum. I hate to leave you on a bad note, but I have not had good success with it in wet sandy areas like lake edges. Aside from this, it’s a great gadget. About metaldetector.com the transaction went smooth. The item was well packed and they shipped right away. They also sent some extras. I enjoyed the reading material. The scoop i was sent is great as were the gloves. On the downside the finds bag was not useful to me. In conclusion I think the bounty hunter platinum is a great general purpose land detector, and metaldetector.com is a good seller. I hope you find something precious. (Posted on May 28, 2012)
