    1891-Dated Queen Lili'uokalani Silver Dollar
    PR61 Cameo, Medcalf 2MH-1
    Reginald Huth Private Pattern

    1891 $1 Queen Lili'uokalani Pattern Silver Dollar PR61 Cameo PCGS. CAC. M. 2MH-1, Bruce X-M1. Queen Lili'uokalani was crowned queen of Hawaii in 1891, succeeding her late brother. Only two years later, she was deposed by American businessmen, supported by diplomat John L. Stevens and the U.S. Marines. London numismatist Reginald Huth sympathized with the lost cause of Hawaiian monarchy, and issued rare private pattern silver dollars to mark the occasion. The present design features a bust left of Queen Lili'uokalani; other varieties portray the young Princess Ka'iulani. The reverse shows the Hawaiian islands, along with the legend AKAHI DALA, Hawaiian for one dollar. This is a brilliant and sharply struck example with distributed minor to moderate obverse marks. (PCGS# 800185)
