In 1964 and official audit of the vaults of the Treasury buildings In Washington, DC uncovered an astounding 3 million U.S. silver dollars struck in the late 1800s at the historic Carson City Mint. The massive discovery sent shockwaves throughout the numismatic community and set into motion the greatest government distribution of highly desirable rare coins ever recorded!
The story begins long before 1964. This 4th edition of Carson City Morgan dollars chronicles the amazing history of the California gold rush which brought hundreds of thousands of explorers to the rugged Wild West of the United States. With a sense of hope miners stumbled across the greatest silver find in history---Amazingly just a few miles from where thousands made their way to the gold fields of the Golden State.
Today the area is known as the state of Nevada, well diversified and a playground for many. But in the late 1860s it was the birthplace of a mining industry that inspired dreams and built the camp that grew into Carson City, NV.
Americans bravely left their homes and families in search of new fortunes in 1848. Today we can hold in our hands a symbol of their dreams, wrapped up in a silver dollar. Carson City Morgan Dollars shines light on the history, die varieties, rarities, values, market conditions, and other aspects of these fascinating coins.
