Explore a boomtown economy of outrageous prices, enormous profits, shattered dreams and some very unorthodox banking. Displayed in a Dawson street-front diorama and accompanied by tokens and bank notes unique to the Klondike, see where the profits were really made in this wild and woolly frontier metropolis.

A display presented by the Bank of Canada Museum.
