Strictly speaking, these are not coins but medals or tokens. Some were made by San Francisco firms such as Moise-Klinkner, but a number were struck in other parts of the country for sale in SF.

The dollar-size pieces are known in numismatics as "So-Called Dollars" and have been cataloged in this book: http://66.39.37.41/page23.html
