Health is wealth and it literally turned out to be so for a lucky Bendigo family that stumbled upon gold on a morning stroll! Yes, that’s right. As explained by the father who was accompanied by his two daughters and family dog Lucy on the walk – it was an accidental find that took place somewhere in the outskirts of the city- a spot that he wishes to keep anonymous.
Commenting further on the scenario, the lucky gentleman said, “It was Mother’s Day morning and we decided to go for a walk,” He further added, “Mum actually stayed at home so me, my two daughters and Lucky were just walking along.” While the father confessed to have walked right past the gold nugget, it was one of his daughters who discovered it and later brought it to his attention. The solid gold stone has now been verified as real and is estimated to weigh around 624 grams or 20 ounces.
It is valued in at a steep $35000 and is being claimed by the Bendigo family as a blessing even though they plan to sell it soon. Exclaiming on the situation the father said, “We’ve come on some tough times so it’s really good because we’ve been struggling financially. It couldn’t be better timing really.” The family also expressed their desire to return to the anonymous site in the hope of striking gold again! Here’s wishing them luck with their endeavors!
