Nevada - LOCAL DIRECTORY GUIDE
Nevada is known as the “Silver State” because the importance of Silver in both the economy and history of the state cannot be overstated. Rich Silver veins were struck several times throughout the state in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Few people are aware that Nevada is also the fourth-largest Gold producer in the world. In 2004, for example, 6.8 million ounces of Gold were mined in Nevada, besides 10.3 million ounces of Silver. Over two-thirds of Nevada’s population resides in Clark County, home of Las Vegas. Las Vegas tourism generates over $12 billion in gaming revenue annually.

Their product options include .999 Silver, .999 Gold and other non-precious metals. Nevada Coin Minting has a fascinating specialty—they strike gaming tokens in Precious and other metals
A natural result of discovering so much Silver in Nevada was the establishment of a branch of the United States Mint in Carson City in 1863. It mainly produced Silver coinage, including dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars. The Carson City Mint also minted Gold coins including $5, $10, and $20 denominations. Though the mint closed in 1885, it resumed operation in 1889 only to close permanently 1893. Today, United States coins minted at this facility remain especially popular with Nevada investors who enjoy local history.
