Gold values haven't changed much since 1847.You could buy a new
home along the Wasatch front for one of these gold coins in 1847.You
can still buy a nice luxury home along the Wasatch front for one of these gold
coins in 2014.
Simply stunning. I had no idea these were around, having been a numismatist
myself. The story behind the coins are so much more valuable, there is simply no
price on that. The story of sacrifice is priceless. It's emotional for me
to hear how some of the early saints from the Mormon Battalion heeded Brigham
Young's call to leave the gold fields at Sutter's Mill, as soon as
possible, with the gold they did have, to use it for the purpose of helping the
rest of the migration to the Great Salt Lake Valley. Priceless.

collection perhaps?It's got the Angel Moroni on one side and a
White Salamander on the other, right?That's an interesting
Two men come to mindGlen Beck is a great collector and .. never mind
John Huntsman he is giving away all his money.
