Found by a 17 year old in 1931, the Golden Eagle Nugget is the largest ever unearthed in Western Australia. Weighing more than 32kg and measuring more 60cm in length, the Golden Eagle is a beast! In today's currency, and based on today's gold price, it'd be worth more than $1 million!
Named because of its spread-winged Eagle shape (you might have to squint...!), the Golden Eagle is the subject of this 2oz silver coin from The Perth Mint. Struck from two ounces of 99.99% pure silver, this is an appropriate BIG FAT precious metal tribute to one of the largest gold nuggets ever found.
