From the early 1870s until his death in 1902, John Mackay was among the richest men in the world and was without a doubt the wealthiest man to emerge from Nevada’s fabulous Comstock Lode. Author Michael J. Makley explores how, from his beginnings as a poor Irish immigrant, John Mackay developed a strong work ethic that distinguished him for the rest of his life. He came west to seek his fortune in the California Gold Rush and then moved on to Virginia City, Nevada, where he dealt in mining stocks and operated silver mines. After making a fortune in mining, he transferred his energies to banking and communications. John Mackay offers new insight into the life and achievements of this remarkable man. It also places Mackay in the broader context of his time, an era of robber barons and rampant corruption, rapidly advancing technology, national and international capitalism, and flagrant displays of newfound wealth. Even in this context, he stood out, not only for his contributions to Nevada and mining history, but also for his reputation as an important business leader fighting the consolidation and venality of corporate power in the Gilded Age. His actions freed the Comstock from a financial monopoly, resulting in moderated rates for the milling, timber, shipping, transportation,...

2012 Fiji - Double Taku (Hawksbill Turtle) - 1oz - Gilded Silver Coin - $2 Uncirculated

Coin Story: New Zealand Mint is proud to launch a new Silver Gold Gilded coin, celebrating one of the most unique and rare animals in the South Pacific, The Hawksbill Turtle- or the locally named 'Taku'. Marine turtles have traveled the sea for over 100 Million years. Today, six of the seven species of marine turtles are listed as endangered or critically endangered. Hawksbill Turtles are commonly observed on coral reefs where they feed on Sponges, Seagrass, Ascidians and Soft Corals. A thousand Hawksbills are thought to nest in the Pacific Ocean, which includes a Fijian breeding population of 120-150. The estimated numbers of adult Hawksbill Turtles for Fiji is estimated at 2-3,000. Reverse Design: The reverse features a gold gilded Taku and baby with a stylised shell pattern swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean along with an engraved heading and the coin's metal quality and weight. Obverse Design: The obverse of the coin features the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Packaging: The coin comes encapsulated in a striking cylindrical display case with a transparent lid filled with aquamarine liquid.
