2019 Australian Nugget: Welcome Stranger

This 1oz silver gilded coin marks 150 years since the discovery of the Welcome Stranger gold nugget.

After its discovery in 1869 it sold for about
10,000 British pounds, which is the equivalent to millions of dollars today.

The nugget was discovered near the Victorian goldfields town of Moliagul by John Deason on 5 February 1869. Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
