Gold nuggets, precious gemstones, buried treasures and relics from the past. Now that we’ve got you interested you’ll be pleased to know you can get your fill every month with Australian Gold Gem & Treasure magazine. 

Gold Gem & Treasure magazine has been publishing for more than 25 years and remains the only magazine in the Southern Hemisphere dedicated to metal detector operators and gemstone fossickers. Each issue is packed with vivid photographs of fabulous gold nuggets, gemstones, minerals, coins and relics along with articles on how and where they were found.

The history of Australia’s goldfields and the stories of the men and women who prised open the wealth of this country, both legally and illegally, also play an important part in the magazine’s content.

If you’re looking to improve your chances of finding gold and gemstones, Australian Gold Gem & Treasure magazine will do just that. Handy detecting hints and techniques are an integral part of each issue and while the gold prospecting fraternity won’t exactly give you a GPS reading on where they found the gold nuggets, the gemstone, coin and relic hunters are far more generous with their directions.
Each issue of the magazine also carries advertising from all the major metal detector manufacturers, guided gold prospecting tours, where to buy and sell your gold nuggets, expert detector tuition, detecting and fossicking accessories, maps, books and so on.

Make sure you get your copy of Australian Gold Gem & Treasure magazine every month by subscribing. You’ll save money and what’s more, the copy is delivered plastic-sealed to your door!
