This British Columbia gold token was struck by the jewerly firm of Jacoby Bros. Ltd in Vancouver, Canada. Used along the same lines as California fractional gold where precious metals were trusted and paper money was not, these tokens harken back to a time when circulating money had real intrinsic value.
This type has an Indian head left with 9K at the truncation of the neck on the obverse. The reverse shows BRITISH COLUMBIA GOLD surrounding a shield.
Historic piece and not often available!
