When a young hunter accidentally bagged a gold nugget in 1828, Georgians experienced their own gold rush.   Due to the rich and vast gold deposits, the Federal government authorized the construction of a United States Mint in the new town of Dahlonega, Georgia. This new Mint was joined by Mints in Charlotte, North Carolina and New Orleans, Louisiana.  After a rocky start, the very first gold coins were produced in 1838: gorgeous $5.00 “half eagle” coins. In 1839, the first $2.50 “quarter eagles” were made, and in 1849 the Mint began producing $1.00 gold coins as well.  The Confederacy seized the Dahlonega Mint in January of 1861, and produced a number of $1.00 gold coins and $5.00 gold coins that year. After 1861, the minting of coins ceased forever at the Dahlonega Mint. After a fire destroyed the building in December of 1878, all that remains of this fascinating Mint is a single photograph and the coins that were produced there. (by Timothy O’Fallon)
