The term "gold pinch" harkens back to the days of the American West, where individuals panned for gold in riverbeds. While most found small flakes of gold and the occasional nugget, these were often used as payment in bars. Miners would place a pinch of gold on the bar for a double shot of liquor, symbolizing the value of their findings.

The recovery of the gold lost in the SS Central America's tragic sinking has captured the imagination of many. This event caused a significant impact on the American economy, leading to a run on banks and the Panic of 1857.
