1.5 Gram Gold Dust from the Sacramento Assayer Hoard



Add to Cart

You can now own authentic gold dust from California's legendary Gold Country – located in the Sierra Nevada foothills and site of the greatest gold rush in American history! Prospectors flocked to the area soon after gold was discovered in 1848. And though the main deposits were depleted during the 19th century, patient prospectors continue to find small quantities of gold to this day.

The capital of Gold Country has always been Sacramento, and that's where this hoard of gold dust and small nuggets was accumulated in jars by an assayer during the early 20th century. Prospectors would bring in their gold to determine its purity, and pay the assayer for his services with raw gold! Amazingly, the assayer kept the gold in its natural state rather than melting or refining it.

The sons of the assayer recently decided to sell the stash, and 1.5 gram quantities of gold particles have been hermetically sealed in PCGS holders with the designation Sacramento Assayer Hoard. Each 1.5 gram quantity is unique and comes with a story card and certificate of authenticity. Here's your opportunity to own genuine gold from the historical area of the great California gold rush!
