Can You Name This Coin?

For Ringy and KG, one small coin can lead to a huge fortune. On an all-new Diggers, the two metal detectorists travel to the mansions of Newport, Rhode Island to uncover the forgotten treasures of history’s elites.

While in Newport, they stop at the Malbone Castle, originally built in 1741 by wealthy Virginia trader and privateer Colonel Godfrey Malbone. The Malbone Castle was famous for its lavish parties, entertaining politicians, dignitaries and even Founding Father George Washington. Ringy and KG are confident their trip to the castle will uncover a valuable artifact, dropped during a decadent affair centuries ago.

Sure enough, the diggers uncover a coin buried outside of the castle. But with few distinguishing marks on it, will Ringy and KG be able to identify their bounty?

Leave your best guesses about the coin’s identity in the comments, and find out the answer in an all-new Diggers tonight at 10P.

Watch Ringy and KG’s ecstatic dig – and their attempts to identify the coin:

    Love watching the show, hate listening to these two idiots screaming every time they find a gum wrapper or bottle cap. So annoying. I usually mute the whole program. Get real guys and make the show worth enjoying. Honestly….
