Gold Coast Treasure Club
West Palm Beach, Fl

We are a not-for-profit group devoted to hunting for coins, jewelry, relics, and artifacts. Members use metal detectors on land and in shallow water. Members are available to recover lost property on the beaches or in public parks.


The club has monthly meetings with speakers and programs. Members also bring their monthly finds for display. Meetings are the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM, January-November. The meetings are located at the West Palm Beach Science Museum in Dreher Park, West Palm Beach, Florida. Guest are welcomed. Directions & Map
