Imagine that he knew about all of the coins that were issued from the gold discovered in these rushes and how they came about? The Oldest Living Pioneer tells the story of our nation’s gold rushes from a ‘firsthand’ perspective, live! Learn about the era that defined our nation with the world’s “Oldest Living Pioneer”, a one-man show by Donald H. Kagin, Ph.D./ Numismatics, the world’s leading authority on ancient and Pioneer Gold coins, well-known author and auctioneer. A one-act narrative accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation.
