Natural Alaskan Gold Nugget “Golden Alien” 70.1 Grams


In stock


This interesting chunk of gold was recently mined here in Alaska, it would make an awesome piece of jewelry!  It was found this summer above the Arctic Circle near Coldfoot, a tiny town 240 miles before Deadhorse on the Dalton Highway, a community at the end of the road near Prudhoe Bay and the Beaufort Sea.  The population of Coldfoot was just 34 people during the 2020 census.  Founded in 1898, It is said that the name was derived from travelers getting “cold feet” about staying here for the harsh winter.  This Natural Alaskan Gold nugget weighs 45 dwt / 70.1 grams (2 1/4 troy ounces!)  It is over 1.5″ tall and 1″ wide and just over 1/4″ thick.  The smooth texture comes from this piece of gold tumbling down a fast stream. It 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.
