A collection of gold bullion nuggets and crystalline gold valued at over $5 million is up for sale. The Carson Casino in Carson City Nevada is open to offers up to September 14th.
Fred Holabird, who is organising the sale, said “It is a phenomenal collection of gold specimens and nuggets...the things we dreamed about when we were young”. The Casino is selling the treasured items as they find the collection is no longer drawing in the crowds like they used to. The public generally prefer interactive displays.
The sale has been timed well due to the current high gold price. It is hoped that the items, which weigh altogether 313 troy ounces, will reach in excess of $5 million. The proceeds are due to be shared between the Nugget Casino, local charities and the Mae B. Adams Trust whose family founded the collection.
