    Hi I'd like to know what gauge the wire is and its size (diameter).

    Actually it doesn't matter. The thing is that the transmitter and receiver coil must have same gauge and number of turns. In my case the wire was 0.3-0.4 mm and the diameter was determined by the width of the pro mini. Approx: 14 turns.

    That is some intricate work. I'm very impressed you must have some good steady hands. How did you manage to make such a beautiful flat coil?
