Alaskan Mining Placer Gold Nuggets - 10 Pennyweights
Ten pennyweights of real Alaskan placer gold – 240 grains, or half a troy ounce – a serious quantity of the gold that the men of GOLD RUSH™ crew have scratched and clawed to find in some of Alaska’s most untamed and uncivilized territory. Captured for display in a glass vial for protection, these 10 pennyweights of true gold will not only make real the efforts of the Hoffman crew, but will also serve as a unique way to invest in the world’s oldest and most desirable asset and serve as a great conversation piece.
Keep your vial sealed and let no one tamper with your gold – or open it and feel the power it holds, even in this raw form. Carefully sized for consistency, all your gold fits in this vial, which is then packaged in the same type of leather “poke” in which frontier miners carried their stash more than a century ago.
Who among your neighbors and even fans of the show will be able to show their friends real Alaskan gold? You can, with nowhere near the effort and despair of the men of GOLD RUSH.
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.
You probably never thought you’d be able to own real gold as it is found in nature. Now you can.
