In 1860, the first Pony Express rider arrived in San Francisco, bringing mail from as far as Missouri. Created earlier that year, the Pony Express was formed in response to the threat of a civil war and the need for quick communication with the American west. This 1860 three dollar gold coin, minted in San Francisco, recalls the first venture of the iconic mail delivery service.
