    1883 Hawaii Dollar, PR61
    Brilliant Silver Proof
    Few Survive From 26 Pieces Struck

    1883 $1 Hawaii Dollar PR61 PCGS. The akahi dala (one dollar) is a perennial collector favorite as a business strike. With 500,000 pieces struck for circulation, the coins were recalled upon Hawaii's status as a U.S. Territory in 1900, and most Hawaiian dollars were subsequently melted.

    In silver proof format such as this coin, the Hawaiian dollar is an extreme rarity with few survivors from the 26-piece mintage. This example is brilliant and deeply reflective with a hint of clear, gray-blue patina. As expected, the Philadelphia Mint produced a full strike with exceptional detail on King Kalakaua's hair, beard, and mustache. The Hawaiian coat of arms is equally well-produced on the reverse. Some light roughness in the left obverse field prevents an even higher grade for this attractive, rare proof. Population: 2 in 61, 5 finer (10/14). (NGC ID# 2UBZ, PCGS# 10997)
