Nexus Metal Detectors was first established in the metal detecting industry in Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom in the year 2004. Over 15 years of research and development have produced an induction balance metal detector capable of outperforming all other brands in all ground conditions, beach, inland, highly mineralized soil and contaminated sites. Extensive air and underground tests in real conditions have been conducted and documented. Under ground tests were conducted with gold and silver finds including a hoard of coins and other treasures and artifacts. The test results are now available on video on our YouTube channel and containsunderground tests, discrimination accuracy and air sensitivity tests as well as our new series of discovery documentaries.The first model introduced in 2004 was Nexus Standard, a deep seeking hoard hunter, ideal for all search targets including gold and silver was based on induction balance technology. It produced incredible depth and discrimination accuracy results soon became known as the deepest metal detector. The release of this model has set the performance standard and became the beacon of more advanced technology to be released.The name Nexus is based on the principal of operation. The word is derived from Latin, which means to bind, other definitions includes connection, link or tie, appropriately applied to the two overlapping loops of the receiving and transmitting coil. The first model was based on the idea of the user and the metal detector in use (the Nexus) would work together for a common goal, discovering lost treasure and other finds in real search conditions. The capability of the metal detector, the natural human senses and experience linked together produce the ultimate results in search for lost treasures, coins, hoard and other artifacts.At the end of 2006 the Nexus Standard was replaced by, the Nexus Standard SE. In September 2006 the Nexus Ultima 5F with 5 interchangeable frequencies was introduced. With its dual 20" search coil and separate frequency choice, Nexus Ultima 5F became the most powerful and deepest hand held metal detector ever made. At the start of 2007, Nexus Coronado was introduced, a semi-professional, deep seeking metal detector. The year 2010 welcomed the

Discovered in 2009 at Hammerwich near Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, the Staffordshire Hoard is the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver found. Artefacts dates to the 6th, 7th to early 8th centuries. The hoard consists of approximately 3,500 pieces, comprising up to 5 kg (11 lb) of gold and 1.3 kg (2.9 lb) of silver. On 25 November 2009 the hoard was valued by the Treasure Valuation Committee at GBP 3.285 million, which, under the provisions of the 1996 Treasure Act, is the sum that must be paid as a reward to the finder and landowner.

release of Coronado Groundfix, a switch and go type with automatic ground balance, deep seeking and with top performance in real search conditions. For both professional and beginner in the treasure hunting hobby, the Coronado Groundfix soon became in demand. All Nexus products are induction balance technology and fully tuned in electro - magnetic resonance. This fact and the original unprecedented search coil design have made the Nexus an exclusive in the metal detector industry, the only resonant tuned on the world market. The advantages of resonant tuned metal detectors are thoroughly explained on the Science pages of this web site, by following the science link, with comprehensive information about how a metal detector works. The most important purpose of all Nexus designs is the aim for perfection, indisputably the best, deepest ground penetration, unmatched discrimination , low weight, ergonomic and elegant design, versatility in both inland, woodland and beach sites and above all long lasting performance. In 2014 we are introduced a new range of four metal detector models - Nexus Standard MkII, Credo DDM, Credo and Bonanza. Our customers will have the pleasure to use Nexus with the popular DD coil design. We are introducing DD search coils in three sizes all completely tuned in electro-magnetic resonance. These are first resonance tuned DD search coils on the market. All current Nexus professional treasure hunting metal detectors are deep seeking and capable to work on any beach and inland site around the world.We invite you to join on a journey where you can find lost coins, artifacts, hoards, silver and gold treasures at the best depth any is capable of.
