Alaska - LOCAL DIRECTORY GUIDE
Gold mining has been a major industry in Alaska since the 1896 Klondike Gold Rush. To date, more than 40 million troy ounces of Gold have been mined; at today’s market rate, the total value of this Gold is more than $12 billion. According to the State of Alaska, it is the state’s most valuable non-energy commodity. Due to its well-known association with Gold, Alaska is one of the country’s largest markets for Gold bullion. Despite the popularity of Gold and Silver investment here, there are few large Alaska coin dealers, primarily concentrated in Anchorage, the largest city in the state.
