Discover the Truth with Garrett Metal Detectors: Competitive Hunters Seek Hammered Coins in the UK

 

Imagine the world is one giant treasure hunt. That’s how our guest today Garrett Marketing Director Steve Moore on the new Discover the Truth podcast with Garrett Metal Detectors feels when he goes out into the field. On this episode host Chris Reeves asked Steve how he uses the product, what his most significant finds were, and what’s on the horizon for security detection by Garrett metal detectors.

When Moore joined the company more than 13 years ago, he’d only used a Garrett metal detector a few times. But like any good marketer, he immersed himself in the product and then found himself hooked.

“The founder Charles Garrett encouraged us to get out in the field and work with people that use the products,” Moore said. “I took to it immediately. I love the sense of chasing history.”

He has ‘chased history’ around the world, most recently in the red dirt in far west Australia, Germany, and England. “I really enjoyed England because they have some really good treasure hunting laws that benefit both the searcher and the landowner. So much old and interesting history to find there.”

Moore was on the hunt for hammered silver coins dating back to 1200s, something the local hunters have nicknamed “Hammies” in the UK.

While he was in the UK, Moore competed in a metal detecting competition called a rally against hundreds of others, where hunters searched for planted tokens or items they can find within an allotted period of time. “As a manufacturer, we’re there for the fun of it and to support our brand,” he said.

Whether it’s casual, competition, or security detection, Garrett’s range of products — from the popular Ace to walkthrough detection for sporting events and airports — have long been a trusted name in the industry.
