Why order this 2019-P $100 Australia 1 oz Gold Nugget Welcome Stranger?

On February 5, 1869, John Deason & Richard Oates unearthed the largest alluvial gold nugget ever discovered. They found it in Victoria, Australia. So large was the nugget that it had to be broken into pieces for the bank to be able to weigh it! All told, the nugget weight 66 kg. The Perth Mint is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the find with this gold coin, and now you have the opportunity to share in that history. The mint struck the coin from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold and included its "P" mint mark on the reverse. This coin is part of a mintage of just 7,500 pieces.

Magnificent Welcome Stranger Design

Queen Elizabeth II features in right-side profile on Jody Clark's obverse. She wears her Royal Diamond Diadem, as well as earrings and a necklace. A rim frame around the image bears three inscriptions, her name, "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," and "100 DOLLARS."

The famous nugget, which became known as "Welcome Stranger," features on the reverse against a backdrop of radial lines. "WELCOME STRANGER 1869" is inscribed just below the nugget. "AUSTRALIAN NUGGET" arches over the image on the rim frame, while "2019" and "1 OZ 9999 GOLD" are included on the bottom part of the frame.
