Check out "magnet fishing".. I have a 350# rig, but have found no big treasures so far.
For the most part here..unless you are near a historic battlefield, any old ferrous metal is not likely to be a treasure.
On the other hand..in Europe, any deep pond or lake could bring up interesting relics.
Our creeks around here are marvelously clear, so unless the water is very deep, people can spot anything of real value, right from the bridge.
Break walls would be better. or the face of a dam. Still it's a "crap shot'..

|Argent11||Some guy in England recently accidentally dug up an old gold Roman coin. Valued at 700,000 dollars. How would you like to find that change?|

|land_owner||For three years in high school I worked part time for wages and tips as a grocery bagger for Pantry Pride, which is not unlike Publix and Winn Dixie. My father and I would go through the days coins, and sometimes paper money, like numismatists. He would keep and save all of the unique coins. We had a very large collection and he had gone through all of it and categorized most of it. At his passing, Mother took all of it to the local coin dealer, who gave her dollar for dollar. I never got a chance to stop her before it was a done deal and long gone. I could have used the value of those silver certificates, WWII era steel pennies, wheat pennies, and dozens of pounds of silver coins.|

I know one way they get into circulation;
This was about 62 years ago.. My wife's (fiancť then) Mother Had an old cigar box with her collections of memorabilia. and a few handfuls of coins..including many Indian head pennies.
She had put the box back in the closet and forgot it for years. Then one day she decided to pull it out and reminisce over he memorabilia.
Imagine how surprised she was, when she discovered most of the coins had disappeared1
It was found after a family meeting, that the wife's little sister, was frequenting the little old country store just down in the village..and enjoying ice cream bars and the penny candy jars..
The hired help at the store never mentioned it !
