The San Francisco Exposition of 1939 to 1940 was held at Treasure Island, an artificial island constructed on the San Francisco Bay between the cities of San Francisco and Oakland.

The Standard Oil Company of California sponsored the Petroleum Exhibit and issued these two tokens with differing inscriptions.

I find it hard to comprehend why anyone can be proud of their oil because
1) God made it there, not human intelligence;
2) Oil can be more of a curse than a blessing.  It proliferates corruption, and invites foreigners to invade your country.

This country seems an exception:  Norway, Centenary of Independence.



Oil made Norway very rich

Besides, we should keep in mind that this was a series of three "independence anniversary" issues, each consisting of two coin types (silver, gold) with different designs. Could be considered to be a timeline: The first two coins (2003) were dedicated to agriculture, the next two (2004) to oil, the last two (2005) to electronics.

Yes. Norweign sovereign fund is the largest in the world. Last valuation had put it worth 1.4 trillion USD.

Sure, natural resources (I do not believe in "God made it") are not distributed equally. Ask the people in the UK, specifically Scotland. ;D But for the same reasons you see, say, coal or gold depicted on coins from other countries. As I wrote, in the case of Norway it was part of a centennial series that tried to show the timespan. It may have made sense to add a few heads to the designs, as the value of resources largely depends on how we deal with them ...
