During the 1848 California Gold Rush, Sacramento became a major distribution point and destination for wagon trains and stagecoaches. Ever since then, the area has been synonymous with gold.
Today, Sacramento, the state capitol, is home to many gold and silver dealers. While gold is especially popular here, a reflection of the region’s gold mining history, there are also many shops specializing in silver bullion and rare coins.
