[STC00820] “I have found it!” is the translation of the Greek word from which we get the term “Eureka.” It was initially brought to widespread attention by Archimedes, an ancient Greek mathematician, when he discovered a method for determining the purity of gold; nonetheless, the phrase has since grown to be synonymous with the occurrence of discoveries of any kind. And it was the finding of gold in California that led to the adoption of “Eureka!” as the official motto of California. The discovery of gold in California in 1848 catapulted the state onto the national map and caused an inflow of almost 300,000 people to the West Coast over the course of the subsequent years. The precious metal is also the official mineral symbol for the state of California. Archimedes’ exclamation was made the official state motto in 1963 and also appears on the state seal.
