This is a nice chunk of gold that we recently picked up from a miner here in Alaska! It was found in Hope, Alaska during the 2021 mining season. Hope was one of the original gold rush towns in Alaska formed in 1889. This Natural Alaskan Gold nugget weighs 5.5 dwt / 8.5 grams (just over 1/4 troy ounce). It is just over 3/4″ long and 1/2″ wide and 1/4″ thick. This nugget comes with a certification book and map showing when and where the gold was found.
General Info about nuggets
Because of our low prices, this gold sells quickly, if we do not have this exact nugget in stock we will find something comparable for you.
Natural gold has other metals mixed with it, including silver and platinum.
Most of our nuggets are between 70% to 95% pure gold. You can request nuggets from different areas of the state and will notice that the color and texture varies from mine to mine. Our certified nuggets start at $50.00 and go up to several thousand dollars depending on the nugget size and the market price of gold. Our nuggets are weighed in pennyweight (DWT) 1 pennyweight equals 1.55 grams, 20 pennyweights equal 1 troy ounce. We negotiate with the miners to get the best price possible, but because of their rarity, natural nuggets sell for more than the daily price of gold, in fact, the larger the nugget, the more per ounce it can cost.
