Description:

Some legendary coins represent the passionate quest for gold on the American frontier. This section of the online exhibition entitled "Legendary Coins and Currency'' teaches students how the discovery of gold, both in the southeastern United States, and later in the West, had a major effect on American ideas about the creation and use of money. This highly interactive resource, from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, allows students to rotate and zoom in on objects for detailed examination. A glossary linked to the exhibition will help students learn challenging vocabulary.
