The medal is a remembrance of the original San Francisco US mint building referred to as the "Granite Lady" and depicted on the back. It was one of the few buildings left standing after the 1906 earthquake, but it was abandoned in 1937. The medals were sold in the Souvenir Shops at the mints, and included in Mint Sets as Purchased from the government. Yours is probably bronze or copper alloy made at the current San Francisco Mint. The medals they include now are only the size of a cent and struck on the Cent planchet blank. There is no catalog which lists a value for this item, but it is fairly common. I hope that helps.
