    1886 Kalakaua Birthday Medalet
    AU53, Medcalf 2RM-13

    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.
