Gold Nugget
A gold nugget is the raw form of the precious metal gold, and is usually found by digging in the very earth that created it. However, in this raw form the gold, while certainly valuable, is unusable for buying anything. Therefore the nugget has to be exchanged -usually at the national mint- for money. The nugget then is melted down with others to gold bars, which are the raw material source for more gold coins.

Exchange Rates[edit]

-Terri at the Royal Mint in Ultima VI will exchange every nugget for 10 gold coins.
-Cynthia at the Royal Mint in Ultima VII will exchange every nugget for 10 gold coins.
-Devra at the Inn of the Sleeping Bull in Ultima VII Part Two will exchange each nugget for 20 gold coins.
-Bucia in Moonshade in Ultima VII Part Two will exchange each nugget for 20 gold coins.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Ultima VI, nuggets can be dug up from the ground. Dungeon Shame is especially rich in nuggets.
  • Gherick in Ultima VI does need a gold nugget to create a magic shield.
  • For some reason, Headless are quite fond of possessing gold nuggets, as they are often found on their bodies.
