Still image from Timeblazers: Gold

Timeblazers Sam and Jen go back to a time when ancient Chinese civilizations were using cowrie shells as currency and when buying a water buffalo meant coughing up the animal's weight in coins. They flash forward to the 1800s, when goods could be purchased in exchange for beaver pelts. Then to the middle of the 1400s, when "gold fever" gripped the imaginations of explorers who dreamed of finding the fabled city of El Dorado, but it was the California gold strike in 1849 that brought more than 50,000 prospectors to the West in search of easy riches.
