When you order a goldmonster from Gold Rat we give you a small gold nugget to set your machine up in the field! 

Please Note the Gold Monster now comes with the 5 inch nugget coil only and the 10x5 is optional, some marketing material may refer to the older package.

The GOLD MONSTER 1000 turns beginners into experts with fully automatic operation in an easy-to-use, high performance detector.

Fully automatic operation


  • Automatic Noise Cancel
  • Auto Ground Balance
  • Automatic Sensitivity 

45 kHz VLF & 24-bit signal processor

This primary combination greatly boosts sensitivity to gold beyond that of other single frequency VLF detectors over a wide range of nugget sizes, without introducing excess noise and false signals.


Easy-to-Use Controls

  • Gold Chance Indicator
  • Detect Modes: Gold (Iron Reject) and Deep All-Metal
  • Sensitivity Options: Manual Sensitivity, Auto, Auto+ 
  • Adjustable Volume: 6 volume levels

Improved Discrimination

The GOLD MONSTER 1000 also has improved ferrous/non-ferrous discrimination and copes better with conductive (salty) soils than higher frequency detectors, making it the perfect choice to maximise your gold recovery.
