California Gold Rush Jumbo Commemorative Coin

On January 24, 1848, James Marshall found a few tiny gold nuggets while building a mill for John Sutter near Sacramento, California. News of the discovery spread quickly and set off one of the largest human migrations in history as a half-million people from around the world descended upon California in search of instant wealth. In the first 5 years of the California Gold Rush, more than 12 million ounces of gold were found. But the gold rush's greatest impact was the unprecedented growth of the area. Before the gold rush, fewer than 7,000 nonnatives lived in the region. Just two years later, the population on the West coast had exploded and California was admitted as the 31st state of the Union.

Available exclusively from American Mint, this jumbo coin is a gigantic 4" in diameter. Minted to the highest quality "Proof" standard, is plated in .999 pure silver and accented in 24k gold. The obverse features an exquisitely detailed image of a prospector panning for gold. Bothsides of the coin are accented with 24k gold with an incredible diamond-dust effect that makes it sparkle.
