The Marshall Mint began minting operations in Virginia City, Nevada in 1991 to offer a quality of jewelry and “proof like” minted product rarely found today by the public.
Located in the Comstock National Historic District at 96 North C Street, the Marshall Mint features a full line of custom gold and silver medallions, nuggets, collector coins and currency, bullion, jewelry, and a world-class mineral and gem museum. Visitors to the Marshall Mint can see the actual coins minted and jewelry produced in the press and assembly rooms. The museum grade specimens are for sale to collectors and dealer.
The Marshall Mint is located in the historic Assay office building, built in 1861. It is a significant landmark where miners celebrated their rich assays or mourned their losses. Virginia City itself sits atop the greatest gold and silver lode ever discovered in North America- the Comstock Lode. Virginia City is located on SR 341 approximately 12 miles from State Highway 395, Reno, Nevada.
