The Kingdom of Hawaii issued copper cents in 1847 and silver dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars in 1883. These coins lost their legal tender status in 1900 when Hawaii became a U.S. territory.
Private tokens were also struck starting in 1860 and circulated widely until the end of the century.
Sharp detail with lustrous light chocolate brown surfaces. Free from the corrosion that tends to plague this issue.
Beautiful light brown surfaces that are fully lustrous and turn to golden brown at the borders. A delicate lime-green hue is also present. The strike is strong and the coin is remarkably free of problems, corrosion, and significant marks. The eye appeal is exceptional!
CAC. Sharply struck with lustrous surfaces that are 70% red.
CAC. Plenty of thick frosty luster stands out through a blend of champagne-gold. Difficult to find due to heavy melting after Hawaii became a territory in 1900. Even more difficult to find with eye appeal this nice.
Stunning blue-gold toning on this very high quality coin. Halves in high grade are truly scarce with only 17 coins grading numerically higher at PCGS than this beauty!
