    Old coin found in California

    I drove by this site today and it brought back a memory of a coin I found a couple of years ago. I thought all of the California group might enjoy.

    hey Kg,
    Did you ever find anything about the coin ?? Any idea what it's worth ?? Do you have any pics of after it was cleaned ( I'm assuming it's been cleaned ). Sounds like a REALLY cool place to hunt... Have you gone back ? and if so what's the update ? Ok.... enough Q&A

    Re: Old coin found in California

    kg6yll, as you know, people came from countries all around the world during the gold rush, to try their hand in CA, right? This included people coming up from Mexico and South America. The south american country that sent the largest amount of people, was Chile. LOTS of Chilean miners made their way up here. The reason was, there had been a gold rush down there years earlier. So there were a lot of experienced miners in those regions, already familiar with methods, etc.... For this reason, there is periodically Chilean coins (in addition to other coins of the world) found in gold rush era sites.

    I found a copper Chilean coin, also from the 1840s or 50s, in a gold rush era site once. My research on that one, was what led me to this Chile/CA connection.

    Nice find!
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong but my Euro to Dollar conversion shows the coin on ebay is going for about $400.00

    Consider the comma as a period: $4.00

    I thought that it was too good to be true.
