A dog walk turned into a life-changing outing for a family in Australia who found a valuable gold nugget on their Mother’s Day stroll. The family from Victoria, who wishes to remain anonymous, were walking their dog - fittingly named Lucky - when one of the daughters kicked something hard on the ground.
At first, they were unsure what they’d found, but now experts confirm it’s a gold nugget weighing 20-ounces. And experts estimate it’s worth around $25,000! The family is planning to sell their “random find” and they’re checking the area to see if there’s any more gold nearby.
“We’ve come on some tough times and have been struggling financially,” the father explains. “So it couldn’t be better timing really.”
