Its a very small coin that has an Indian head with a date of 1889 on one side and the other side says California Gold and 1/2. Its in fairly good condition.
Approximately 1/2 inch in diameter. Round.
My in-laws were collectors of coins and other collectables. When they passed they gave the collection to me.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Coin values can range quite broadly depending on their grade, which is something that requires in-person evaluation by a specialized coin grader. Mearto doesn't provide that (additional) service but what I can give you is a broad range of what this coin might be worth (pending grading) and let you decide if its worth the expense of getting it valued. It's also a question of authenticity - look at this website: https://coinquest.com/cgi-bin/cq/coins.pl?coin=1604
