Have you ever wondered where the name Mint Gold Dust came from? CEO and Founder Kelly LeValley Hunt reflects on a personal experience at an auction and how that led to the creation of Mint Gold Dust.
“Some years ago at an auction of Old World artifacts, I witnessed the sale of empty canvas sacks sold solely by weight. It baffled me that anyone would pay substantial sums for empty bags hundreds of years old, and I inquired further.
I then discovered these nondescript canvas sacks had once been used to transport immense quantities of gold. While the sacks were now empty significant quantities of gold dust still remained, filling the crevices and folds in the cloth. By practical alchemy this precious residue had transformed otherwise mundane objects into coveted pieces of considerable worth.
As I often reflected on this memory over the years, I realized the metaphor in these canvas sacks that kept drawing me back. Every object, and by extension every person, possessed inherent worth as well as the innate potential to metamorphose into something far greater than its present state. In addition, those hundreds of pounds of gold had left remnants that held and created significant value long after the main attraction had moved on. And so I wanted to create a platform for everyone to mint their own Gold Dust.”
