At the beginning of each new month American Detectorist members vote on the best detecting finds made during the previous month. Three categories of finds are considered: coins, relics, and jewelry. The monthly winners in each category are featured on the forum with a recognition avatar during the following month, and their winning finds and posts are recorded in the Award section of the forum.
