1895 Princess Kaiulani Hawaii Pattern Silver Dollar

1895 $1 Huth Hawaii Silver Dollar PR61 NGC. 2MH-5 (incorrectly listed as MH-4 on the NGC insert). The obverse features Princess Kaiulani, facing right, four dolphins (a symbol of good fortune) surrounding the portrait. A map of the Hawaiian Islands set in the mirrored globe background of the Pacific Ocean centers the reverse. This specimen, while moderately hairlined, exhibits deep, watery mirrors and tinges of golden peripheral toning. Kaiulani was the heir apparent to the Kingdom of Hawaii thrown when the monarchy was dissolved in 1893. The princess died six years later at the tender age of 23. According to Medcalf, Reginald Huth was a wealthy British coin collector who enlisted Pinches & Co. of London to produce a select quantity of high quality Hawaiian medals in various metals. Listed in Medcalf & Russell's Hawaiian Money Standard Catalog, 2nd Edition, 1991 as 2MH-5. Listed in Unusual World Coins, Third Edition (1992) by Colin R. Bruce II as XM4. The latter reference estimates a mintage of 30 pieces; Metcalf states that varieties 2MH-3 and 2MH-5 had a combined production of 50 pieces. (#10995) (NGC ID# 2TGD, PCGS# 10995)
