In 1848, the largest single gold rush in history was exploding in California. The sudden influx of this precious metal prompted the U.S. Mint to increase production of its most affordable gold coin: the 2 1/2 dollar "quarter eagle." They still used the "Coronet" design that was created in 1838 by Christian Gobrecht but the 1848 Gold Quarter Eagle had a special added feature to indicate that they were minted from California gold.
The initials "CAL" were punched into the reverse above the eagle's head. Only 1,389 quarter eagles were ever made with this hallmark, and fewer than 200are known to still exist today, making the 1848 "CAL" Gold Quarter Eagle one of the most highly coveted gold coins in U.S. history.
