Golden nuggets are obtained in the Motherlode Mine by searching the sack after cleaning the pay-dirt. There is a 2.74% chance of pay-dirt yielding a golden nugget, independent of mining level[1]. An overfilled sack of 108 pay-dirt has a 95.02% probability to contain at least one golden nugget. They can be traded in for various rewards from Prospector Percy's Nugget Shop.

At current values, based on the price of soft clay each golden nugget is worth 1,360 coins.

A full set of Prospector mining armor costs 180 nuggets.

Likewise, based on the average value of bag full of gems, each golden nugget is worth 769.38 coins.
