Gold nuggets auctioned at high prices – largest find in Alaska

The “Alaska Centennial Gold Nugget” found in Alaska is the size of a child’s head, weighs almost ten kilos and was auctioned at high prices in the USA.

Dallas – A gold nugget weighing almost ten kilograms was auctioned at high prices in the United States.

The so-called “Alaska Centennial Gold Nugget” brought in 750,000 dollars (around 661,000 euros) at the auction, as the auction house Heritage Auctions in Dallas announced on Twitter. According to them, the child’s head-sized piece is the largest nugget of gold found in Alaska to date. Initially, nothing was known about the buyer.

The gold nugget was discovered in 1998 in a stream near the town of Ruby by the miner Barry Clay. The gold rush had begun in the Klondike region a hundred years earlier. A private collector bought the find from Clay at the time, and his heirs have now put the gold nuggets up for auction, as Heritage announced in advance. dpa
