If you like gold, but not necessarily in coin form, then Heritage Auctions has alternate options.
The largest chunk weighs 25 grams, or 0.8 troy ounce.
Measuring 23.1 by 20.3 by 14.8 millimeters, the gold nugget shows evidence of tiny pieces of quartz. The example previously sold in The Philadelphia Americana Sale by Stack's Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, 2010, where it realized $1,035, which included the 10 percent buyer's fee added to the final closing hammer price.
A 24.7-gram gold nugget offered by Heritage that measures 22.8 by 15 by 13 millimeters was also previously sold in The Philadelphia Americana Sale in 2010, where it realized $1,092.50.
