With the discovery of gold in California in 1848, a region of North America that was at the time still a sleepy backwater was about to be inundated with more than 300,000 people seeking fame and fortune. The California Gold Rush changed the fortunes of the region and the United States for the better, and the worse in some cases. Today, the 2016 1 oz Silver Antique Niue Gold Rushes of the World California coin is available on Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Mintage set at just 5,000 coins in total!
  • Includes encapsulated 24-karat gold flake in the center!
  • Ships in a plastic capsule contained within a black New Zealand Mint display box.
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Face value of $5 (NZD) is fully backed by the government of Niue.
  • Antique finish.
  • Obverse features the image of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Hopeful prospector image graces the reverse.

Word of the discovery of gold in California first reached people living throughout California, Oregon, the Hawaiian Islands (then called the Sandwich Islands), and Latin America. Over the course of time, more than 300,000 people would flood into California hoping to make a life-changing discovery of gold.

While small towns of the time such as San Francisco expanded from a settlement of 200 residents in 1846 to a city of 36,000 by 1852, it was not all good news. Native Americans living in California were pushed off their lands, often forcibly, in the feverish quest for gold. It is estimated that 100,000 California Native Americans died between discovery and 1868.

These 2016 1 oz Silver Antique Niue Gold Rushes of the World California coins feature a special 24-karat gold flake encapsulated in the center as part of the stunning design. The antique finish on each coin adds warmth to the overall design features.

On the reverse of the coin you’ll find a hopeful prospector on bended knee at the edge of a creek, panning for gold. The included 24-karat gold flake appears in his pan as part of the overall design of the coin.

The obverse of the 2016 1 oz Silver Antique Niue Gold Rushes of the World California Coin features the smaller right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Additionally, there are engravings of “Niue,” “2016,” “5 Dollars,” and “1 oz .999 Silver.”

New Zealand Mint is the refiner responsible for the production of these stunning silver coins. Located in Auckland, it is the only minting facility in New Zealand and is a private entity not associated with the national government.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
