My Visit to Dahlonega

Young Numismatists Exchange | The Error Collector

Last week I went to Dahlonega, Georgia where a US Mint was located from 1838-1861. The Mint was located there because there was a gold rush in Georgia and too much gold was being found to be taken safely to Philadelphia to be made into coins. During the Dahlonega Mint's duration, it minted more than $6 million dollars of gold coins. In 1861, the Dahlonega Mint was seized by the Confederate Troops ending its time as a US Mint.
