U.S. Mint at Charlotte

The Charlotte Mint, a branch of the U.S. Mint, was founded in 1835 at the height of the short-lived Carolina Gold Rush. It was established specifically to mint gold coins; over $5 million in gold coins were minted here from 1838 to the beginning of the Civil War, at which point the mint closed. All of the gold coins minted here carry a "C" mint mark; they are now highly collectible, especially within North Carolina.
