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 silver, 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.
2021 $1 Golden Eagle Nugget CoinBy: John on 1 March 2021Another fine example of a 99.99% Silver bullion coin from The Perth Mint - it has been excellently engraved. The background radial lines, which are not at first apparent, enables the engraved nugget to be clearly seen in order to show the ‘Golden Eagle’ shape. Comm Coinage again provided great service and this coin is a welcome addition to my bullion collection.
