Oregon celebrated its statehood centennial in 1959. Part of the celebration was the issue of gold-colored 'so-called' dollars that were sold as souvenirs and keepsakes. Since then, these tokens have been placed in collections all over the world.
There is no gold in any of these tokens. They come from various counties and with various designs. Counties include places like Clackamas (this example), Coos, Baker, Clatsop, and Wallowa Counties, and there is a state-wide souvenir with a wagon train.
All these tokens are worth the same to collectors, as follows:
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $3
fully uncirculated: $15
Once in a while you see these tokens graded and encapsulated in numismatic plastic 'slabs.' Slabbed tokens in MS67 might sell as high as $40.
