Welcome find features gold coin

The Welcome Stranger weighed 72kg and contained almost 2,300oz of gold when it was found in the Victorian goldfields northwest of Melbourne. It sold for about 10,000 British pounds, the equivalent to millions of dollars today.

Also included in the design are the inscriptions ‘WELCOME STRANGER 1869’, ‘AUSTRALIAN NUGGET’, ‘2019 1/4oz 9999 GOLD’, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
