The family from Bendigo in Victoria, who asked to remain anonymous, were walking their dog — fittingly named Lucky — on the outskirts of town on Sunday morning when the daughter kicked something hard lying on the ground.

At first, the father and his two daughters were unsure of what they had found — but it has since been confirmed by experts as a 624 gram gold nugget with an estimated value of at least $35,000 ($37,000).


Australian man finds 624g gold nugget worth $37,000 while walking dog

The family was out for the day celebrating Mothers Day. They were on a walk and the Dad walked past the nugget, luckily the daughter kicked it and picked it up. She held it up and asked if it was gold.

Heres the nuggget:

Bendigo family strikes gold, finds $35,000 nugget on city outskirts

And what is up with this? NZ not letting me watch a vid because I am in the US?


Check out this pic from the story linked in the OP. The biggest nugget EVER found.


I know a lot of it is the ancient potato camera, but that is a strange bunch.

If I had seen that

And even picked it up and held its weight

I'd still be too dumb to know what it was and would probably chuck it in the river.

Very cool! All my dog ever finds is some dried up old chicken bones. One time I think she found an alien finger. ( too funny autocorrect wouldn't let me put aliens) ...hmm. Whatever. Well alien's. Hmmm...
moving on.

I got distracted.

The funny joke would just make me seem like a rambling idiot now.

Sorry you had to read this. 😉

Cool story, but I must say I'm pretty sure a far larger specimen was found in California (alone).

I didnt have it, never been there, but I saw one they found a nugget not unlike this story here, but like 150 years ago, you wouldnt see those hands in the photo here. OP said its the biggest in history is all.

You are right one was found that weighed 103 pounds (46.72 kg).

At 1.37568 pounds (624 g) this down under nugget is very small compared to Calif nuggets.

One found at a mine next to the mine I ran in calif weighed 13.3 pounds (6.03 kilogram)

Pretty sure he was talking about the one in the old photo. Looks like it has 210 lbs written on it.

They do have big'uns down under.




Considered by most authorities to be the biggest gold nugget ever found, the Welcome Stranger was found at Moliagul, Victoria, Australia in 1869 by John Deason and Richard Oates. It weighed gross, over 2,520 troy ounces (78 kg; 173 lb) and returned over 2,284 troy ounces (71.0 kg; 156.6 lb) net

I think what happened is the pic didn't load and he couldn't tell the context.
