Gold has been the key standard of value since prehistoric times, the durable metal most easily extracted from the earth and most readily purified and shaped. Its discovery in concentrations, or lodes, set off migrations of prospectors seeking instant fortune.
First, it was the lure of gold that prompted most of the explorations of the New World. Captain John Smith was certain that he would find evidence of native goldsmithing as the Spanish had in South America. Unfortunately, the gold did not turn up in North America until 1829, when two brothers discovered it on their farm in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Over the next decade, millions of dollars worth of gold were shipped to the mint in Philadelphia from mines throughout Appalachia, including one in the 1950s near Great Falls, Maryland. Finally, what essentially ended gold mining in the East was the discovery of richer lodes in California, then Alaska.
