Alaskan Mining Placer Gold Nuggets - 1 Pennyweight
Contained within this glass vial is genuine Alaskan placer gold – the very stuff that the men of GOLD RUSH™ have sought in their attempt to strike it rich. All you have to do is click your mouse and we’ll send you 1 pennyweight of gold, taken straight from the Alaskan wilderness that the men of GOLD RUSH have desperately tried to conquer.
The gold nuggets within this vial have been carefully selected for similarity of size, securely enclosed with a screw-top, and packaged within a genuine leather “poke” – just like the ones used more than a century ago by old-time miners.
For fans of the GOLD RUSH show, here is a tangible representation of the quest that has driven a team of down-on-their-luck men to one of the most remote places on the planet to seek their fortune. And, it’s real gold, in a raw form that is rarely seen in modern America.
A pennyweight is the traditional measure for this sort of gold -- a standard dating to the Middle Ages, when one British pence weighed 1/20th of an ounce (or 1/240th of a pound sterling), and was commonly abbreviated “dwt.” The “d” derives from the Roman “denarius,” a form of money predating the British monetary system.
Throughout history, men have hunted gold at great personal peril. You may have yours right now.
