Dahlonega is a town located in Lumpkin County, Georgia, USA, and is its county seat. As of the 2000 census, it had a total population of 3,638.

Dahlonega was the site of a branch mint between 1838 and 1861, when Confederate troops seized the facility and operations ceased. Numerous gold mines were scattered around the area, a major reason the Cherokee people were forced to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears. The city's name since 1833 comes from the Cherokee-language word "talonega", meaning "golden". The city is just east of Auaria where gold was first found. Senator John Calhoun also owned the Calhoun Mine, just south of the City Square. The mint at Dahlonega, like the one established in 1838 in Charlotte, North Carolina, only minted gold coins, in denominations of $2.50 (quarter eagle), $5 (half eagle), $10 (eagle), and after 1849, tiny $1 coins. The mint at Dahlonega was a small operation, usually accounting for only a small fraction of the gold coinage minted annually, and it was deemed unnecessary to reestablish the facility after the Civil War. As a result, surviving Dahlonega coinage is today highly prized in American numismatics. The mint building burned in 1878 - but the North Georgia College campus built another hall on its foundation. The building is clearly identifyable by the gold leaf roof.

Dahlonega is home to North Georgia College & State University, which includes the Military College of Georgia. The campus has a building topped with a spire, which is covered in gold leaf from the town. The rotunda dome of the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta is also covered the same way.

Located at the north end of Georgia 400, about an hour's drive from Atlanta, Dahlonega is also a popular tourist attraction for residents of metro Atlanta. The Dahlonega Gold Museum sits in the exact middle of the town square, in the old Lumpkin County Courthouse built in 1836. From its steps in 1849, Dahlonega Mint assayor Dr. M. F. Stephenson tried to persuade miners to stay instead of joining the California gold rush. His oration gave rise to the phrases "thar's gold in them thar hills" and "there's millions in it".
