About California Fractional Gold
Issued in round and octagonal shapes and three denominations of 25-cents, 50-cents, and one-dollar. These small gold issues are intricate miniatures of large gold coins yet no bigger than the size of a fingernail, and were struck to fill a void of circulating coinage in the territory. There are approximately 590 different varieties of the three denominations cataloged in the Breen-Gillio (BG) reference guide.
