Tri-State Coin and Relic Hunters Club

Serving Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee

Founded September 27, 1996


Do you enjoy searching for treasure?

What about old coins, bottles, relics, and toys? Would
you like a chance to share your experiences and finds
with other who enjoy the hobby/sport of metal detecting?
If you do, come out and join us once a month!
What? Who are we? Well, we are a club based in Iuka, MS, known as:
The Tri-State Coin & Relic Hunter's Club

Fun For the Whole Family

The Tri-State Coin & Relic Hunters Club meets once a month at the Iuka Public Library. Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:00pm and the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9:00am on alternating months. (For example, July's meeting will be the 2nd Thursday of July at 6pm, August's meeting will be the 2nd Saturday of August at 9am, etc)

Dues are $20.00/yr. Our Club year runs from October through September.

Members bring their finds monthly to be judged in one of five categories: civil war, jewelry, coins, civilian, and military (other than civil war).
Point are awarded and totaled for awards at the end of the year.


We have a open hunt usually in October for the preceding year.
We usually have 5000+ targets in the ground,
mostly civil war bullets, coins, civil war plates and buttons.


We would be delighted for you to visit our meeting and perhaps join if you would like.
You may also download an application from our web site and mail it and your dues.



Win a Vanquish 340 Metal Detector! We are giving away a new metal detector. Each month you attend, you get a ticket. The more meetings you attend, the more chances you have to win it. The winner will be chosen at our December meeting.
