The History of Gold

Gold has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. From the first time someone found a small shiny rock in a stream it has captivated our attention. Gold artifacts dating back to the 4th millennium BC were found in the Balkans. Meaning that for over six thousand years gold has played a part in the development of human civilization.

The oldest mention of gold in written history comes from egyptian hieroglyphs from as early as 2600 BC. It is also mentioned multiple times in the bible.

Whether used as currency, jewelry, or part of a decoration this precious metal has had huge implications in world history. The Americas were explored and colonized because rumors of Aztec gold traveled across the Atlantic and Europeans wanted access to the abundance.

Legends of El Dorado fueled further exploration and the map of America we know today was created almost entirely because of the gold rush in 1948.
