The purpose of this web site is to help educate numismatists, collectors and investors about Dahlonega gold coins. Additional information can be found in a new book called Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint 1838 - 1861: A Numismatic History and Analysis.

The gold coins struck at the Dahlonega Georgia Mint during the years 1838-1861 are some of the most sought after in all of numismatics. The historical significance of the Dahlonega Mint and its coins has a certain appeal that attracts collectors from all over the world.

In January of 1838, two half eagle dies arrived in Dahlonega, and coinage began. During the next twenty-four years, gold dollars, quarter eagles, and half eagles were issued. A few three dollar gold pieces were struck in 1854. Many of these were rather crudely made owing to the primitive nature of the equipment, a characteristic that modern collectors often find has a certain charm.

From the standpoint of value received for the price paid, American gold coins from the Dahlonega Mint offer many fantastic opportunities for the alert buyer. Dahlonega gold has everything going for it - rarity, romance, and a totally unexploited marketplace. Dahlonega gold has never been exploited: the coins are simply too rare to promote, but supplies are tight and even a modest increase in demand could lead to much higher levels.
