0345, 0346 USA - California, California Gold Rush

private swap

California, "The Golden State", is the fourth largest producer of gold in the United States, following only Nevada, Utah, and Alaska.
The discovery of gold on the South Fork of the American River at Sutter's Mill, near Coloma, in 1848 led to the fabled California Gold Rush of 1849. Unlike traditional hard-rock deposits, California's gold was readily available on the surface, concentrated into rich placer deposits which an inexperienced prospector with minor tools could reasonably expect to exploit.
