On January 24, 1848, it happened - builder James Marshall struck gold. Rather, he discovered some gold nuggets near Sacramento, California. He was constructing John Sutter's mill when he made the discovery, and news quickly spread. Thus began the California Gold Rush, as over 300,000 people all over the world migrated to California. It was among the biggest migrations in human history, spurredby the dream of immediate riches.
Within the first half-decade of the Gold Rush, these individuals uncovered millions of ounces of the mineral. But the discovery of valuable gold wasn't theonly thing happening during this time. The area experienced unprecedented growth, causing the population of the West to explode, and California was the 31st area admitted to the Union as a state.
The California Gold Rush stands in America's history as an event that revitalized the economy, though it came at the cost of hardships and heartbreak for many. We commemorate this part of the nation's history with the California Gold Rush Jumbo Commemorative Coin.
