This exciting colorized $2 note design honors Cripple Creek and the Denver Mint! Exclusively colorized by Littleton’s artists.
When gold was discovered at Pike's Peak in 1858, within a year over 100,000 eager fortune seekers arrived hoping to strike it rich. In 1862, Congress authorized a new branch mint in Denver to process the gold. Most easy-to-find gold was soon played out. But in 1890, a new discovery in Cripple Creek led to one of the largest gold strikes in history. Recall that exciting era with this beautifully colorized note.
