“No single event in the history of silver rivals the importance of the discovery of the New World in 1492. This momentous finding and the years that followed reinvented the role of silver throughout the world.”

—The Silver Institute

Where it all began

American history and expansion is deeply rooted in the search for precious metals. Following the Spanish conquest of the New World, which resulted in a surge of global interest in precious metal mining, the United States became a key player in the quest for silver after the discovery of the Comstock Lode in the Sierra Nevada Range in the 1850s.

Westward Expansion

The unearthing of this buried treasure in the American West effectively constituted the next wave of American conquests and colonization, as word of the large amount of hidden wealth spread across the civilized world. Silver was a critical driving force behind the creation of new towns, the diversification in population, the expansion of railroads, and the rise of the labor movement.
