With the multi-purpose 3D metal detector OKM Rover C II it is possible to detect hidden metal artifacts in different types of terrain and deeper than conventional detectors are able to explore – such as the coin treasure found in the Sechura Desert in Peru. The coins used to be a popular trade currency of the Spanish Empire – with noticeable effects on today’s world currencies. Learn more about the silver coins, also known as ‘Pieces of Eight’, and discover the special features of OKM’s metal detectors and 3d ground scanners.


A successful Turkish treasure hunter discovered a precious golden decadrachma as part of an ancient hoard of coins. He used our metal detector Black Hawk to detect this buried gold treasure.

A treasure hunter from Iran detected a fabulous treasure by using his long-range gold detector Bionic X4.

Some of our customer's latest treasure finds demonstrate the versatility of his powerful 3d ground scanner Rover C II. While treasure hunting in Morocco and conducting several measurements, he discovered a significant coin treasure that dates back to the 11th century. The age of the copper coins could be reconstructed because of its inscription "480 Hijri". On another site the treasure hunter was successful in finding several fragments of an old meteorite.


On a sunny day some colleagues from OKM grabbed a Black Hawk pulse induction metal detector and started treasure hunting in a nearby wooden area with some old houses. During our search we found several buried items and artifacts. Mostly some old coins were detected but also some other objects the people lost over the past years. This was also a good opportunity for OKM to get new ideas for further improving the Black Hawk metal detector. This day we cleared the area close to the earth's surface but we will come back with our 3d ground scanners eXp 4500 and eXp 6000 to find the deep hidden treasures too.
