    1886 Medal Kalakaua Birthday AU53 PCGS. Medcalf 2RM-13. King Kalakaua of Hawaii celebrated his 50th birthday on November 16, 1886. A rare silver medalet, about the size of a half dime, was distributed for the occasion. The reverse inscription translates to HOLIDAY MONEY FOR USE IN THE SCHOOLS. The medalet was intended for display with a ribbon, and all were issued with a small mounted ring at 12 o'clock. The present piece has an intact mount, and the pearl-gray surfaces are problem-free aside from light high-point wear.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best. Consign with Heritage when you're ready to sell.
