2019 $25 Welcome Stranger 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin 

This 1/4oz gold proof coin marks 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.

Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1/4oz of 99.9% pure gold, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The coin's reverse features an illustration of the Welcome Stranger nugget by the renowned Stuart Devlin, AO gilded in 24-carat gold. Along with the inscription 'THE WELCOME STRANGER NUGGET 1869', 'AUSTRALIAN NUGGET', '2019' and The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark.

The coin's obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date and the monetary denomination.

The coin is housed in a classic display case. Packaged within an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
