Mr. Mohrig made some pretty cool coins in California


Just thought I would post an image of one of my favorite California Gold small denomination coins. This one (1875 BG-878) was made by Christoph Mohrig of San Francisco. Mr. Mohrig made numerous "coins" and "tokens" during the 1870's and 1880's. Finally put out of business by the US Secret Service circa 1883, he died in San Francisco in 1904. He was one of the primary and most important makers of California Gold tokens and charms.
