Does anyone know what this coin is?

I found an old coin in my great grandmother’s collection, and I was wondering what exactly it is. I did research and I didn’t come up with a good answer. On the front, it has a picture of lady liberty, and it was minted in 1859. The back part of the coin that I provided is the most telling part, which says “California gold” and “1/2.” Can anyone identify what this coin is and what it might be worth?
