Alaskan Mining Prospecting Coin - Silver Round with Gold Nugget
Every miner and every fan of GOLD RUSH™ should carry a little bit of gold with him – and here’s yours. Affixed to this beautifully minted coin is a genuine nugget of Alaskan placer gold. It’s on the obverse, where you’ll see the representations of the tools used to unearth gold like it over the years -- pick and shovel, pan, header frame, front end loader, mine cart, and pneumatic drill – the latter was known as the “widow maker,” because its operators had a life expectancy of just three or four years.
The reverse features the emblem of GOLD RUSH, the Discovery Channel™ show about seven men who risk it all to strike it rich mining for gold at the farthest outpost of the 49th state. The coin itself assays at .999-fine silver and weighs in at 20 pennyweights or one troy ounce. The 1.525 inch in diameters coin is sealed inside a Lucite capsule and is stored inside its own leather “poke” like the ones used by frontier gold miners to store their cache of gold.
With real silver and a real Alaskan gold nugget, you can claim your own stake of gold from the 49th state.
