Using Metal Detectors & Ground Penetrating Radar, we'll conduct a search of your property upon request in the Los Angeles Metro Area. Please share property details & why you believe there may be valuables in your yard in the contact box below. We've found gold coins, time capsules from the 50's and many more interesting things in yards across LA. 


We visit most properties the following week after submitting a request. Please allow 2-3 days for a response. 


Backyard Billions will survey pre-approved areas of the property with Metal Detectors & Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Once objects of interest are discovered, we’ll begin the excavation process, with our intention & practice to leave your yard in the condition we found it.

All items are photographed & logged, with valuables taken off premises for appraisal. Once the value is determined, we contact the owner to share appraised value and the following two options:

1) Surrender items and receive payout based on appraised value 

2) Retain items and remit payment to Backyard Billions based on appraised value

Backyard Billions share varies based on a value scale, from 1/3 to 1/8 of the total appraised value, from $1-$250K+. The property owner always receives the majority of the value.

The hunt will be filmed for our YouTube channel, with the owner opting in or out of being included & sharing property address. We value your privacy. Owner must sign consent form prior to hunt. 



Thank you for contacting us!
