The thriving gold rush economies warranted an efficient means for miners to convert their hard-earned raw gold nuggets and dust into a form that was readily accepted for its true value. This necessity brought about assayer monetary ingots. Assayer ingots soon became the standard method to deal with the massive flow of gold shipped from the mining areas. With the precise weight, fineness and exact U.S. Dollar value stamped by the assayer, along with his hallmark, these ingots transformed raw bullion into a medium of exchange. They were readily accepted for large transactions domestically and internationally, making them real money and numismatically important. Many investors and collectors today find that these rare gold ingots are a fascinating and widely appreciated area of the market.
