Coherent neutral current neutrino-nucleus elastic scattering has never been observed. Although the cross-section is very high, nuclear recoil energies are very small. However, detection of the process may be possible for the new generation of low-threshold detectors. A promising prospect for the first detection of this process is an experiment at a high flux stopped-pion neutrino source such as the SNS. I will present some preliminary rate calculations and discuss the physics reach of such an experiment.
