Direct Coins is pleased to offer this 1/4oz gold proof coin marking 150 years since the discovery of the Welcome Stranger gold nugget.
The world famous Welcome Stranger nugget is the largest known alluvial gold nugget ever found, estimated to weigh a total of 72 kilos and containing almost 2,300oz of gold.
The design features a depiction of the Welcome Stranger nugget by master coin designer Stuart Devlin AO with the inscription ‘WELCOME STRANGER 1869’ and ‘AUSTRALIAN NUGGET’. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the 2019 year-date, and the coins’ weight and fineness are also included in the reverse design.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/4oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, no more than 550 coins will be released worldwide in this packaging.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a wooden lid. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
