Gold Coins Minted in North Carolina

Carolina Gold Coins

On a Sunday morning in 1799, twelve-year-old Conrad Reed, playing hooky from church, found a seventeen- pound gold nugget in Little Meadow Creek near Concord, NC. The first gold rush in the United States began shortly thereafter.

North Carolina was the sole supplier of gold to the Philadelphia Mint until 1829. In 1837, the government opened a mint in Charlotte to use the North Carolina Gold. The mint was closed the day North Carolina seceded from the Union.

Charlotte Mint

Gold coins struck at the Charlotte Mint can be identified by the unique "C" mint mark just below the eagle on the reverse side of the coin.

Now, you can own a piece of Charlotte's history, some of the most desired United States coins, for prices starting under $900.
