Hard to find in the back of the casino. It's big.

Located inside the Golden Nugget Casino is the largest gold nugget on public display. Found in Wedderburn, Australia in October 1980 by a lucky fella and his trusty metal detector lying 6 inches below the surface. Second largest nugget ever found, weighing a mighty 61 pounds and 11 oz. Sold to the casino for a reported million dollars.
