Buying Gold & Silver in Colorado

In Colorado, Gold and Silver have along, rich history and tradition. In the 1800s, as settlers from the East were heading for the Pacific, they would make camps in Colorado. Some of them stayed, finding the open lands, beautiful landscape, and inviting prospects of living in Colorado to much to ignore. Some of these travelers were heading west to prospect for gold. In the 1850’s, gold was discovered in Colorado, leading to more settlers staking claims on the land. In the 1870’s large deposits of silver were found in the hills, streams and mountains of the state. This led to a booming silver mining industry which dominated the state for many decades. Instead of continuing on along the journey towards the coast, many people settled right in the heartland, selecting Colorado as the perfect place to search for their fortune. Gold and Siler became vital to the growth of the local economies. Many lived off the land, spurring the economy by trading gold and silver, and using the nuggets and flakes as currency in the local towns across the state.
