1886 Minneapolis Industrial Exposition

Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Minneapolis Industrial Exposition originated when the cities prominent citizens felt slighted by the selection of its twin city, Saint Paul, as the permanent home for the Minnesota State Fair. The industrial title was a deliberate choice to stand in contrast to the agricultural state fair. Five so-called dollars were struck in various compositions for this exposition. The details are cataloged in my 2023 book So-Called Dollars Volume I: United States Expositions. Click on the “View All” link below to see them.
