See the World’s Largest Golden Nugget
In 1980, Kevin Hillier tried out his new metal detector in his tiny hometown of Wedderburn, Australia. Instead of detecting bottle caps, jewelry or coins, he found a 61 pound golden nugget, only 12 inches below the ground surface. It is the biggest gold nugget in existence. After a flurry of news reports and an exciting press conference, Kevin sold it to the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas for over a million dollars.
