Description:
Important and Rare Matte Proof 1928 Hawaiian Commemorative
1928 50C Hawaiian Matte PR63 NGC. The 150th anniversary of Captain James Cook's discovery of the Hawaiian Islands was marked by the production of the 1928 Hawaiian commemorative half dollar. Juliette May Fraser sketched the designs for the coin, using a bust of Captain Cook on the obverse and a Hawaiian chief on the reverse. Chester Beach engraved the dies. In addition to 9,958 business strikes, the Philadelphia Mint also delivered 50 sandblast, or coarse grained matte proof 1928 Hawaiian half dollars, in 1928. These coins were forwarded to the Cook Sesquicentennial Commission, the agency that organized the commemorative celebrations in Hawaii. The commission distributed these coins, along with special cover letters, to persons or institutions that were either instrumental in the history of the Hawaiian Islands, or who gave freely of their time and/or money to help make the sesquicentennial festivities a success. This is an important and rare coin that should fetch a considerable sum at auction. The surfaces display a somewhat granular, steel-gray appearance, and there are no mentionable distractions on either side of this sharply defined specimen.(#9310) (Registry values: N1300) (PCGS# 9310)
