Welcome to YTC

Hello and welcome friend and fellow detectorist. Yankee Territory Coinshooters is a club formed to enjoy, preserve and protect the hobby of metal detecting. Since January of 1976 our members have been enjoying monthly meetings and other various Club sponsored activities.

Along with the meetings, members also enjoy a monthly newsletter filled with stories, facts and articles of interest as well as access to a private Facebook group to stay in touch with each other in-between meetings.

Membership in our club can help the experienced as well as the novice detectorist obtain current information from new law updates to just good detecting places and tips.

Be a part of this swiftly growing club. Join and become a Yankee Territory Coinshooter.
