Charter: 9242

Year Opened: 1908

Carson City already holds some distinction in the world of numismatics because of its old mint that produced numerous valuable and quite rare coins. It should only be expected that the banknotes issued by this city are just as rare. The First National Bank of Carson City, like The First National Bank of Goldfield was originally a branch of the Nye and Ormsby County Bank. Frank Golden was the moving force behind the decision to turn the Carson City branch into a national bank. Whether good or bad, the bank did receive its national charter on 9/29/1908 and 26 months later it would choose to voluntarily liquidate.

Other banks like Rhyolite and Austin are deemed to be the rarest and most desirable in the state. However, when one looks at total dollar figure of notes issued, none is rarer than Carson City. The First National Bank of Carson City is represented by a single note known. It issued five, ten, and twenty dollar notes.

First President: James A. Raycraft
First Cashier: H.G. Marsh

Other people associated with the bank: A.T. Hoffman, P.B. Ellis, Frank Golden, N.N. McMillen, L.L. Patrick
