The Carson City Mint was built in 1870 to transform into coinage and the silver from Nevadaís silver boom and the Historic Comstock Lode. It was similar in purpose to that of the San Francisco Mint during Californiaís Gold Rush. The Comstock Load first initially became public in 1859 and was one of the United States largest deposits of silver and gold. By 1880, most of the mines were depleted and closed down. In 1877 mining operations peaked and in that single year over 700,000 ounces of gold and over 20 million ounces of silver was mined out of the ground. This new wealth and prosperity flowed into the economy and propelled the United States into becoming a major world power by the turn of the 19th century. However, by 1880, most of the mines were depleted and closed down.

In 1870 the Carson City Mint produced its first coins and actively minted coinage for 23 years until closing in 1893. During operations, the mint produced various denominations of gold and silver coinage which have become some of the most popular and highly sought after coins in the rare coin market today. In fact, the 1876-CC 20 Cent Piece is noted as the 24th Greatest U.S. Coin. Also among the 100 Greatest U.S. Coins is the 1873-CC "No Arrows" Dime (40th), the 1873-CC "No Arrows Quarter (59th), and the 1870-CC $20 Gold Double Eagle (64th). These coins range in value from around $100,000 dollars up to $1.5 million.

Despite the large amount of gold and silver mined, most Carson City coins had relatively low mintage populations and today only a small fraction of coins still exist. The Carson City Mint produced nine different coin denominations during its production; the $20 Gold Double Eagle, the $10 Gold Eagle, the $5 Gold Half Eagle, the Silver Trade Dollar, the Morgan Silver Dollar, the Seated Liberty Silver Half Dollar, Quarter Dollar, 20 Cent Piece, and Dime. These Carson City coins are some of the most popular and collectible rare coins today.
