Gold and silver transfers to Denver Mint - 1934

1 post in this topic

Following passage of the Gold Act of 1934, the Treasury Department began consolidating coins and bullion at the Denver Mint. This was selected because of its isolated location near the center of the country, and because it had sufficient storage capacity. These illustrate the range of amounts shipped - from $10 to over $8 million.

Gold was shipped from San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Federal Reserve Banks. Melting into 0.900 fine bars took place at Denver, Philadelphia and New York. These three points shipped bars to Ft. Knox for permanent storage. Silver shipments were either uncurrent coin, damaged & mutilated, or intended for local distribution.

Pictured are three typical transfer receipts from Washington D.C., Chicago, and Minneapolis.
