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.
CAC. Well struck and lustrous with considerable mint red with the reverse being nearly full red. 100,000 minted with few survivors that are this nice!
Well struck with the barest sign of wear and nice glossy chocolate brown surfaces.
Environmental Damage - AU Detail. Good looking coin!
Rich lustrous chocolate brown surfaces with a lavender hue and a touch of red. Very nice for the grade!
Sharply struck and lustropus with pleasing surfaces that are minimally abraded and show considerable mint red.
CAC. Just 100,000 minted with PCGS giving a 'Red' designation to just 17 coins and this is the only Red designated coin to gain CAC approval!
250,000 minted at the San Francisco Mint and most were melted when Hawaii became a U.S. Territory in 1900.
CAC. Sharp detail with little sign of wear and lustrous golden-gray surfaces.
Crisp white luster and a sharp strike with just a touch of 'rub'.
700,000 minted with most being melted after Hawaii became a U.S. territory in 1900.
The 1883/1383 overdate with a 3 clearly under the first 8. This is a beautiful blast white example housed in an early PCGS holder as simply an 1883.
Grove Ranch Plantation. A very scarce token in any grade with this high grade example being one of just 3 grading AU-53 at PCGS with only 4 grading higher. None have graded mint state. The strike is bold and even and the surfaces are a glossy brown with a nice burgundy-red hue.
