World's Largest Gold Nugget

Not to ruin everyone's good time, but I'm nearly certain that this is a replica -- and poor one at that. You don't have to look too closely to see paint drips.

Fool's Gold in Las Vegas? That sounds perfectly well-suited to us.

It's between the back of the casino in a hallway that leads to the steakhouse and the chocolate shop.

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

Hand Of Faith Nugget

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.

This unique attraction returned in 2012 to Vegas from the Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
