Carson City Mint/Nevada State Museum celebrates 150th Anniversary February 4th
Throngs of celebrants stuffed the Carson City Mint/Nevada State Museum building in downtown Carson City on Tuesday – February 4th 2020…exactly 150 years since the creation to minted gold and silver coins from the gold and silver that was being mined from the Comstock Load in and around Virginia City starting in 1870. The Nevada State Museum is now minting 150 year Commemorative Silver Medallions for the foreseeable future so there should be plenty in the Nevada State Museum store for quite a while.
CC Mayor Bob Crowell welcomes everyone.
