Brigham’s Bees

Special Internet Sale price of $10.95   Somewhere in Utah County, a treasure waits to be discovered. The coins called Brigham’s Bees were works of art. Using a makeshift stamping mill fashioned from a Mexican War cannon, master engraver and Mormon Bishop Samuel Woodbury hammered out a treasury for Brigham Young in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains — more than 3,000 gold coins.
