    Hi All

    I stumbled across this site when looking for some new sources to buy silver from and am glad I did!!! I have read a fair few of the posts and they all seem to be wise commentary on the metal/s we all love I have learnt a lot already so Thanks!

    I am a relatively new to bullion and have been stacking for about 2 years.

    Its great to have found like minded people I look forward to contributing and sharing my experiences.

    Welcome

    I think " Welcome Stranger " is the name of the largest Gold nugget found either in the world or in Australia only.

    Pictures of stacks are always welcome here too :)

    The "Welcome Stranger" was the name given to the largest alluvial gold nugget found in the world, with a calculated refined weight was 2,283 oz

    was discovered by John Deason and Richard Oates, both Cornish[2], at Moliagul, Victoria, Australia on 5 February 1869 about 9 miles north-west of Dunolly. Found only 2 inches (7.5 centimetres) below the surface.

    Wow! Thanks for all your responses.

    I think its the "Welcome Nugget" thats pictured on the 1988 1/2 ounce gold nugget coin series - the "Welcome Stranger" which is pictured on the 1984(?) 1oz gold nugget - I may be wrong but I own a few welcome strangers (they are my favourite Au bullion - hence the name) - I think it went to "Posiedon" in 1985. Anyway thanks again for the warm welcome.

    PS if anyone has '84 or 85 gold nugget series - I may be interested in small quantaties.... I am trying to build my silver stack at the moment so am doing about 20 to 1 silver/gold.

    I stand corrected..... I have done a google and found 1988 1oz Welcome Strangers.... I am still quite sure mine are dated 1984.... I will have a look....

    The 1988 1/2oz proof coin depicts a gold nugget called the Welcome and dated 1838
    Doesn't actually name the coin as the Welcome Stranger.

    1 oz 1986 gold nugget series depicts the welcome stranger. I am just bidding on the 4 coin set at the moment, by the way welcome mate.
