Description

Delightful Choice 1883 Hawaii Dollar

1883 $1 Hawaii Dollar MS64 NGC. The half-century that preceded the ascension of Liliuokalani to the Hawaiian throne saw a proliferation of both official and unofficial coins and tokens that served an important role in the economy of the island chain. The most comprehensive attempt to supply the nation with stable money came during the reign of Kalakaua, which saw the introduction of silver dimes, quarters, halves, and dollars bearing his portrait. After the overthrow of Liliuokalani and the subsequent annexation of Hawaii by the United States, the Hawaiian coins were largely withdrawn from circulation and melted; the silver dollar, owing to its silver value, was most affected by this policy.
Still, survivors are available today for a price, though few examples offer the preservation and visual appeal of this near-Gem, which shows lovely luster beneath waves of gold, rose, and silver-blue. The strike is crisp, and the overall preservation is excellent. An excellent candidate for the discerning collector. Census: 16 in 64, 19 finer (12/07). (NGC ID# 2TGD, PCGS# 10995)
