The Minelab VANQUISH 540 is the perfect detector for those who want maximum power, depth and sensitivity at the push of a button.

Easy to use, with no complicated setup required, just turn it on and start detecting. There isn't an easier to use multi-purpose metal detector in it's class.

Minelab Vanquish 540

Minelab Vanquish 540 Pro. True Multi Frequency - All Terrain Metal Detector

Multi Frequency: The VANQUISH is a real multi frequency detector that runs on Minelabs's Multi IQ Technology

With Multi IQ, the VANQUISH 540 constantly scans the ground and automatically adjusts itself using it's multiple frequencies at the same time. This gives you more depth on smaller targets and makes it run smoother and quieter, even on difficult terrain. No ground balancing needed, no need to manually change frequencies for different targets types, just turn it on and the VANQUISH will do the rest.

All Terrain: Because the Minelab VANQUISH 540 uses Multi IQ, you can use it anywhere and on any terrain, even mineralised ground. 

No matter what you are looking for the VANQUISH has you covered. Simply select one of the four pre-set Find Modes — Coin, Relic, Jewellery or All Metal — then start swinging. Each mode is pre-programmed and optimised to give you the best performance, anytime and anywhere: park, field or beach. Its fifth setting is Custom Mode, where you can customise the VANQUISH to your detecting style.

Minelab Vanquish 540  Beach and wet sand

Beach detecting: Unlike many detectors in its class, the VANQUISH 540 won't struggle with high mineralisation or give false signals on wet sand. With it's waterproof coil and shaft, detecting in the water isn't a problem. Take it in the shallows at low tide or even detect in creeks and streams. 

Minelab Vanquish 540  field and park detecting

Park and Field detecting: The Vanquish makes light work of trashy sites, where treasure is often buried amongst old iron and junk. Even annoying hot rocks and mineralised ground aren’t an issue for the VANQUISH 540. 

With the VANQUISH nothing goes undetected and no terrain is off limits. Silver, gold or jewellery. Park, field or beach. Unearth the power of VANQUISH with Multi-IQ. Learn more about Multi-IQ Technology.

        Ask a Question
        • Is the 540 good for finding gold example nuggets?


          The Minelab Vanquish 540 is designed as a treasure, coin and beach detector. It might struggle to cut through the high mineralisation found in gold baring ground and isn't recommended to be used as gold detector. 

          The best value for money and most sensitive VLF gold detector is the Nokta Makro Gold Kruzer. It comes with 2 search coils, coil covers and wireless headphones and can pick up the smallest gold nuggets other detector can easily miss.

          Here's a link to it.

        • is this good for all ages.


          The Minelab Vanquish 540 metal detector is great for pretty much all ages. It is very light at approximately 1.3kg and has an easily adjustable shaft. I would recommend it for kids 7 years and older.

          It is a very powerful detector with easy to use pre programmed settings.

          As it is the top of the line model in the Vanquish range, it isn't a detector that a youngster will out grow.

          Please let us know if you have any questions.
