Set Description:

History, Adventure, Romance! I can never seem to read enough about the old 49ers and California Gold Rush era. Definitely a unique exciting time in our nations history. The gold bug bit many around the world. So much so, as to cause people to pull up and leave everything behind in search of riches. Parallels can be drawn today as collectors abandon older collections in search of building newer collections based on this most addicting of all precious metals! Holding an assay piece invokes thoughts of placer mining, panning for gold. Questions pop into ones mind, how much sacrifice, how long did a miner have to work for me to have this most interesting piece of California's history. These are more than just stamped pieces of metal; they are the character of an age long since passed, with an aura of discovery and struggle, the embodiment of our American heritage.
