Excerpt from Private Gold Coins Struck in the United States, 1830-1861: A Complete Illustrated List of the Various Coins Issued by Private Assayers in Georgia, Carolina, Colorado, Utah, Oregon and California Upon the discovery of gold in California and the influx of prospectors and traders there was an immediate need for a medium of exchange other than the unwieldy bags of gold dust. Several firms struck coins in 1849 and the State Assay Office of California, with Frederick D. Kohler as State Assayer, began stamping ingots early in 1850; a few of these still exist. In the latter part of 1850 the firm of Moffat Co. Were designated as United States Assay representatives and Augustus Humbert of New York was appointed United States Assayer to place the government stamp upon the ingots produced by Moffat Co. This business was in 1852 con ducted under the name of the United States Assay Office. For a full account of the preceding and the operations of other com panies see Edgar H. Adams Private Gold Coinage of California. The Mormon coinage grew out of the same necessity and appeared early in 1849. It did not, however, compare with the California coinages in actual intrinsic value. The firm of Clark, Gruber Co. In Denver coined gold from the Colorado mines and produced over worth in 1860 and 1861. The Parsons and Conway companies were much smaller operators. Way up in Oregon the same need for a medium of exchange produced the two pieces struck by the Oregon Exchange Co. In 1849. It has been thought best to limit the scope of this work to a complete illustrated list of the various coinages, excepting the minor die varieties existing in some of the California pieces.

Gold, Money and the Law

Beginning 30 years ago American citizens were allowed to own and exchange gold in any form, something they had not been able to do for the previous 40 years. Restrictions on gold began with a series of actions intended to buttress the collapsing economy of the 1930s, including executive and legislative action forbidding the private ownership of and trading in gold and abrogating "gold clauses" in contracts--obligations payable in gold or in dollars measured by gold. All of these actions were subsequently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. They have profound implications for us today. This book provides a full and thoughtful consideration of all these issues, including the economic and legal history of the events of the 1930s, the effects of those events on government and private practices since that time, the economics of gold clauses and other indexing devices, and the anticipated impact of the legalization of gold ownership. It includes chapters by James M. Buchanan and T. Nicolaus Tideman, Milton Friedman, Harry G. Johnson, Ralph K. Winter, and Gerald T. Dunne, as well as discussions by Allan Meltzer, Karl Brunner, Armen Alchian, Lester Chandler, and David Meiselman among others. The diverse points of view represented make this book valuable to a broad spectrum of people concerned with the relationship between legal and economic policy; with the role of money in times of depression or inflation; and with the importance of gold itself in international and domestic economic systems. It will be important to economists concerned with international trade, macroeconomics, monetary economics; legal scholars concerned with problems of constitutional law, international trade, and the theory of contracts; and to that large group of people who are interested in precious metal that has long been central to human affairs.

He has published many books and articles and is an Honorary Life Member of the American Law and Economics Association. He is considered an expert in insider trading, legal education, law and economics. Roger LeRoy Miller is associated with the Institute for University Studies in Arlington, Texas.

Excerpt from Private Gold Coinage of the United States: A Treatise on the Subject of "Private and Territorial Gold Coins of the U. S.," Including the First Important Issues of the Bechtlers and the Later California Coinage From the Various Private Mints of That State Thru the medium of present day scenario and fiction writers the the picture and story of the pioneer is vividly brought to us. We may still see the covered wagon, stage coach and pony express. We may still witness the hardships these pepple endured, the misfortunes, the brighter side; sudden wealth, love, romance, and the fascination of it all. While we do not seethese things in reality, we do however, as numismatists, preserve that which is real and appropriately emblematic of the pioneer. I refer, of course, to the private issues of gold which are so scarce today and cherished so much by the numismatist.
