The State Seal of Nevada with a mining scene, train and agriculture implements is depicted on the obverse. The legend on reverse mentions Virginia City, which was a boomtown in 1859 due to the Comstock Lode (the first major silver-deposit discovery in the United states), bestowing Virginia City as the “Richest City in America.”
