E.E. Hensley of San Francisco struck this elegant commemorative medal with large golden gates that swing open to a view of the Golden Gate. The reverse features a map of the United States indicating the location of cities and the dates which they hosted an International or Industrial Exposition. Some varieties are signed with the initials I & J for Irvine & Jachens, either off the coast of Mexico, near the Panama Canal, or not signed at all.
