2019 $1 Welcome Stranger Coin & Stamp Cover PNC.

The Perth Mint and Australia Post have just released this Welcome Stranger coin & stamp cover, marking 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.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the uncirculated aluminium bronze coin is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the coin's reverse and obverse designs.

The coin's reverse features an illustration of the Welcome Stranger nugget by the renowned Stuart Devlin, along with the inscription 'THE WELCOME STRANGER NUGGET 1869-2019' 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.

Fixed to the envelope is an official Australia Post $1.00 stamp which is post marked First Day of Issue and the envelope includes Australia Post's Seal of Authenticity.

Postmarked First Day of Cover 26 February 2019, Bendigo VIC 3550.
