  • The Wild West Set contains four very significant coins from the 1800s. It tells a story from around the time of the California Gold Rush in 1849, and how it affected different parts of America. In the states with the resources to mine gold and silver, and the influx of gold in California, a considerably higher amount of gold coins were being struck along with some silver coins, mainly the Liberty head $5 and the Morgan Silver Dollar. These were used in areas of wealth, however, in the poorer areas they would use the bronze cent coins and also the Mexican Libertad as their main currency due to the lack of finer gold and silver American coins. This set contains an example of each coin, drawing attention to the difference in the wealthy and poorer states. The four coins that it contains are the Liberty head: Christian Gobrecht 1839-1908, The Morgan Dollar: George T. Morgan 1878-1904, The Mexican Libertad – 8 reales 1824-1897 and the Indian Head: James B. Longacre 1859-1909
