This is the story how the Denver Mint was created
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clark, Gruber and company were making silver dollars during a winter when Colorado was snowed in and cut off from the Philadelphia mint and coins were in short supply in Denver. These silver dollars had more silver in them than the dollars made by the Philadelphia mint. After the winter was over the US Treasury sued them for counterfeiting the US currency.In court they proved that they were not counterfeiting because their money was better than the US mint produced dollars. They won the case and to stop them from making dollars the US was forced to buy them out for $25,000 and converted their operations to what became the Denver Mint.
