Golden Nugget Cripple Creek

Golden Nugget Hand of Faith

Hand of Faith

Making its way to Cripple Creek, The Hand of Faith is the biggest golden nugget in existence and the second biggest ever discovered, and the biggest ever found with a metal detector.

In 1980, Kevin Hillier took his new metal detector out for a spin in his tiny hometown of Wedderburn, Australia. Instead of a bottle cap or paper clip, he found a 61-pound golden nugget barely a foot underground - and in case you’re wondering, Hiller made out just fine. He sold his golden nugget to the Golden Nugget for over a million dollars.
