Description

The Perth Mint and Australia Post are pleased to present this stamp and coin cover 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. After its discovery in 1869 it sold for about 10,000 British pounds, which is the equivalent to AUD $3-4 million today.

The nugget was discovered near the Victorian goldfields town of Moliagul by John Deason on 5 February 1869.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated base metal coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin’s reverse and obverse designs
