Nevada Gold and Silver Rush Silver Coin

The Comstock Lode had been a minor gold placer district since 1849. In 1859, several prospectors discovered its rich lode silver ore, and a great rush of miners poured eastward from California, and established Gold Hill and Virginia City, the principal towns of the Comstock Lode. The Comstock was the first important silver-mining district in the United States, and its discovery stimulated a great deal of prospecting for silver across the Great Basin area of the United States. The resulting silver rush led to many other silver discoveries in Nevada, including Austin (1862), Eureka (1864), and Pioche (1869).

Commemorating the Gold and Silver Rush in Virginia City, Nevada in 1859, this 1 troy ounce .999 fine silver coin reverse features several gold and silver miners in the underground mining shafts. Embedded within the silver coin is encapsulated, gold plated silver nuggets, visible through a transparent capsule. The obverse then features an eagle and stars with radial lines coming out of the encapsulated insert then the words "ONE DOLLAR .999 SILVER SOVEREIGN NATION AMERICA 2019 MESA GRANDE" appears around the edge of the reeded coin.

With a tiny mintage of just 1,500, this coin is 1 Troy ounce of .999 Fine silver, including the tiny gold plated silver nuggets encapsulated in the coin. This Virginia City Nevada Gold and Silver Rush coin is struck in Proof quality, is stylized in an antiquing finish and bears a denomination of $1 issued by the Mesa Grande Sovereign Nation.
