Certified Natural Alaskan Gold Nugget 2.4 DWT
Every week, miners come in to our shop with the gold that they have found in different parts of Alaska and Northern Canada.
This beautiful nugget is from Ruby, Ak. weighing 2.4 dwt. Found in 1969.
Because of our low prices, this gold sells quickly, if we do not have this exact nugget in stock we will send something comparable.
We purchase some of this gold to make into jewelry or sell as specimen pieces to collectors around the world. These certified nuggets are packaged in a book type holder with a map of the "Klondike" region which includes Alaska and parts of the Yukon Territory and British Columbia in Canada.
We plot on the map where the gold was found, and also include information such as when it was mined, the mining area, and the weight of the nugget. It is interesting to see the different color and texture of the gold from different areas that it was mined. Natural gold has other metals mixed with it, including silver and platinum.
Most of our nuggets are between 70% to 95% pure gold. You can request nuggets from different areas of the state and will notice that the color and texture varies from mine to mine. Our certified nuggets start at $30.00 and go up to several thousand dollars depending on the nugget size and the market price of gold. Our nuggets are weighd in pennyweight (DWT) 1 pennyweight equals 1.55 grams, 20 pennyweights equal 1 troy ounce. We negotiate with the miners to get the best price possible, but because of their rarity, natural nuggets sell for more than the going price of gold, in fact, the larger the nugget, the more per ounce it costs.
We are able to sell gold dust and tiny nuggets at about 10% over the market price of gold, call for availability. For larger nuggets please call us at 1-800-770-6468
