In 1855, the Panama Railroad was completed by the United States. The railroad followed the route that would later claim the Panama Canal, and was used to transport freight and passengers back and forth between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, where they would board ships and continue their journey. This 1855 gold dollar recalls the completion of a railroad that would save significant time in the journey between the coasts of North America.
