Natural Gold Nugget Specs

This beautiful 51.8 gram natural gold nugget was mined in the Klondike back in 2021, near the Alaska-Canada border. This natural gold nugget weighs 33.3 dwt / 51.8 grams (about 1 2/3 troy ounces!). It is just under 1 1/4″ tall, just over 1″ wide.

In August 1896, prospectors initially discovered gold in Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondike River. News of the discovery spread rapidly. This triggered a stampede of prospectors from various parts of North America and even other continents. The Klondike Gold Rush left a lasting impact on the Yukon region and beyond. For example, It contributed to the growth of Dawson City and played a role in shaping the history and culture of the area. As a result, the stories of individual prospectors and their journeys became legendary, and the gold rush era remains a symbol of the adventurous spirit and determination of those seeking their fortune. The area comprising Northern British Columbia, the Yukon Territory, and Alaska collectively earned the name “The Klondike.” Additionally, this nugget comes with a certification book and a map that shows when and where the gold was found.
