2021 Perth Mint Golden Eagle Gold Coin - 1oz
ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL CELEBRATES HUGE NUGGET DISCOVERY
This coin commemorates 90 years since the discovery of the Golden Eagle natural gold nugget. Named for its remarkable resemblance to a bird of prey in flight, Golden Eagle was discovered by prospector James Larcombe’s 17-year-old son at the height of the Great Depression in January 1931 near Widgiemooltha, a small town 630 kilometres east of Perth. Weighing 1,136oz (35.3kg), the sensational discovery remains the biggest nugget known to have been unearthed in Western Australia.
Struck from 99.99% pure gold, the coin portrays the famous nugget on a pattern of radial lines. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design incorporates the anniversary inscription GOLDEN EAGLE 1931.
