There are many available on fleabay suitable for your purpose, generally around the $10 mark.
For example I use this one http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Pocket-Digital-Jewelry-Scale-Weight-500g-x-0-1g-0-01g-Balance-Electronic-Gram-/182105804681?var=&hash=item2a665a0f89:m:mhcbE6cq5Eli5zMmZSeJWhg

Put below into Ebay search. $15 would be top price and sometimes down to around $10

bicter`s right, nearly all the scales on ebay are "fit for purpose".
Do check out the Bendigo Miners Den catalogue as they support us and we should at least have a look at a local supplier before going to Hong Kong or mainland China.(You may get the same product as nearly everything comes from China now.)
The only other common scales for this seem to be Powder scales, as used by shooters to reload ammo.
I have some but it would be much more work too get a usable / converted weight. (Mine are the non-digital type).
For $10 - $20 it`s worth a weeks wait, If you don't have a local detecting supplies store handy.

Picked up a set from Ebay as suggested.  Works great. Cost about $8 from an Aussie seller.
