Product Description

Between 1858 and 1861 over 100,000 people came to the region to seek their fortunes. Half of these returned home after not finding gold. The remaining 50,000 people needed protection and government. In 1861 Congress created the Colorado Territory. By 1868, Colorado¹s easy placer and oxidized gold lode deposits were thoroughly exploited. On August 1, 1876 Colorado became the 38th State. In the 1870¹s and 1880¹s new industrial mining techniques were developed to extract gold from replacement deposits, vein deposits, rock, and alluvial deposits. In 1891, gold was found east of the town of Cripple Creek. The Cripple Creek mines have produced over half of Colorado¹s total gold production of 45 million ounces. This collection includes two replica gold coins and three gold bars of the Colorado Gold Rush.
