The Comstock Lode is located in Nevada and when a rich lode of silver was discovered here in 1859, the prospectors that had flooded west a decade earlier to Californias gold rush now turned their gaze to the east and moved to Nevada in droves. Comstock was the first major silver mining district in the United States and led to the establishment of Gold Hill and Virginia City. Later silver rushes would occur in Austin, Eureka, and Pioche between 1862 and 1869.
On the obverse of these 2019 1 oz Antique Mesa Grand Nevada Gold and Silver Rush Silver Coins is a depiction of an active silver mine as one would have found in the Comstock Lode. The inscription above marks the name of Virginia City and the date of its founding as the Comstock Lode kicked off the gold and silver rush in Nevada.
The reverse of the coins includes a burst of sunrays emanating from the inset capsule with the 24-karat gold nuggets. Below the capsule, there is the head of an American bald eagle and inscriptions around the edge identify the face value, weight, purity, and metal content of the coins, along with the name of issuer: The Sovereign Nation of Mesa Grande.
