    Steven Saylor designed a special medallion to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Dayton Nevada's oldest settlement. The Founder's Day medallion is a one-ounce .999 silver medallion that was struck on the historic Carson City Mint press. A total of 151 medallions were produced, and each one bears the Mint's logo on the back.


    This medallion was commissioned to celebrate the discovery of gold in Dayton's Gold Canyon, which is located next to Saylor's studio. The discovery of gold in 1849 sparked a rush of prospectors to the area and led to the establishment of the first settlement in Nevada.


    The medallion's image is shown in black, but it is actually silver. The black background is used to highlight the quality of the detail in the design. The medallions were produced in limited edition and packaged in a protective case with a commemorative envelope. Only one hundred silver medallions were minted, each bearing the "cc" mark on the back.


    This medallion is a beautiful and unique way to celebrate the history of Dayton Nevada's oldest settlement and the discovery of gold that led to its establishment. It is a must-have for collectors and anyone interested in the rich history of the American West.
