1954 California State Fair and Exposition

Sacramento, California

In 1954 this medal was struck to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first State Fair held in California. A State Fair is not usually considered an exposition, but in this case, since the medal struck for the event specifically states the word Exposition, the “California State Fair and Exposition,” it is being catalogued as an exposition related so-called dollar. The 100 year anniversary exposition showcased the states fruits, vegetables, flowers, grain, and livestock. The latest developments in farming machinery and agriculture were demonstrated.
