Why purchase a one-of-a-kind SSCA California Gold Rush Nugget?

The 1848 discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento Valley initiated the California Gold Rush, which lasted until 1855. During those few years, approximately 300,000 people converged on the region to seek their fortune in gold. In 1857, the S.S. Central America, 280-foot sidewheel steamship, was journeying to New York with a cargo of more than 3.5 tons of California gold. As a result of a Category 2 hurricane, the "ship of gold" sank off the coast of the Carolinas, dragging 425 of its 578 passengers and its precious metal cargo 8,000 feet down to the Atlantic Ocean floor. The wreck of the S.S. Central America was discovered in 1989. Twenty-three years later, a 2014 expedition team recovered several intact bags of gold nuggets.

  • This nugget hails from one of the recovered bags of prospected gold from California.
  • Each nugget is preserved in its natural size and shape, no two are alike!
  • The nugget you will receive will fall within the range of .21 to .30 grams in weight.
  • The nugget is certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

Authenticated Gold Nugget

The gold nuggets retrieved in the S.S. Central America 2014 expedition were painstakingly preserved and stored by an affiliate of the NGC, the Numismatic Conservation Services (NGC). Each nugget was then weighed by the NGC and encapsulated with a specially designed label confirming its historic pedigree. Each certified nugget is presented in a brown velvet "SSCA" branded drawstring pouch, accompanied by a detailed narrative about the famed California Gold Rush, along will a description of the S.S. Central America's doomed voyage and recovery.

This genuine .21 to .30 gram California Gold Rush Nugget from the S.S. Central America sunken treasure will be an exciting addition to your collection!

Fantastic piece of History
This “nugget” shows a person of what the hold rush was about and is housed in an instructional album that tells its story. So, you learn something new and different about gold.
