A dictionary defines a pioneer as “one who goes before, showing others the way to follow. Can we somehow find the courage and that steadfastness of purpose which characterized the pioneers of a former generation? Can you and I, in actual fact, be pioneers today? Oh, how the world needs pioneers today! The Pioneer Trek Coin was created to highlight some of the key principles and values that can be gleaned from the Pioneers who pulled handcarts across the plains in search of Zion more than 150 years ago. This coin is designed as a physical reminder that each of us is a pioneer in his own life, often in his own family, and many of us pioneer daily in seeking to do God's will.
