The 'Goldasaurus' nugget is a 144 ounce (4.5 kg) gold nugget found in Victoria in 2003.

In 2007, the nugget was loaned to Museums Victoria so that a replica could be produced. Museums Victoria preparators (museum staff tasked with preparing specimens and models) created a silicone mould of the nugget, cast a replica form this, and painted the replica to accurately mimic the colour, lustre, and texture of Goldasaurus.
