Carson City is named for the famous frontiersman and scout Christopher “Kit” Carson. During his 1843-1844 expedition, John C. Fremont had named Carson City’s nearby river for Kit Carson, Fremont’s scout. Pioneer Abraham Curry arrived in Eagle Valley in 1858 and soon thereafter surveyed and plotted a town site.

Minted in an antique, patina finish, this lapel pin is dedicated to the pioneering spirit and indomitable will of the people of Nevada. The obverse features the Kit Carson on horseback boldly riding into the frontier, with the city’s motto encircling:

Proud of its past, confident of its future

Each pin measures 1 inch (25.4mm) in diameter.
