Stop Counterfeits

Genuine Minelab; Genuine Performance; Stop Counterfeits Campaign

Driven by high demand for Minelab’s genuine products, there is currently a strong global black market in unauthorised copies of popular Minelab products.

Minelab is always working to keep you informed to ensure you avoid fake Minelab products. We aim to protect the interests of you, our valued customers, as well as the authenticity and quality of Minelab’s products and our premium brand reputation.

Here is what we are doing.


Minelab has introduced new security labels designed for usage on control boxes and coils. 

First phase implementation focussed on the GPX-4500, GPX 4800 and GPX 5000. In addition, the security label has been added to the product carton of all GPX Series detectors.

With this label, products can be easily verified as genuine. For your peace of mind, your nearest Minelab authorised dealer will easily be able to confirm authenticity by inspecting the security label through the special viewer. IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

GPX Series detectors can also be verified as genuine Minelab using our SMS verification system.

New security labels have also been added to the Eureka Gold, X-TERRA 705 Gold and Commander Coils. These are smaller in size and are designed to assist you in recognising genuine Minelab product. Your Authorised Minelab Dealer can reveal the hidden colour image and confirm that you have Genuine Minelab Performance.
