    1891(93) Huth Medal, PR63 Deep Cameo
    Queen Liliuokalani, Bruce X-M1

    1891 $1 Queen Liliuokalani Pattern Silver Dollar, M. 2MH-1, Bruce X-M1, PR63 Deep Cameo PCGS. Wealthy London coin collector Reginald Huth commissioned this medal in 1893. A total of 50 coins were struck, most of which were distributed to friends and associates. It commemorates the reign of Hawaiian Queen Liliuokalani, who ascended to the throne in 1891 following the death of her brother. In 1893, a group of American businessmen led by Minister John L. Stevens overthrew the Queen and ruled as a provisional government for five years before Hawaii received Territory status in 1898.

    These pieces appear in the PCGS Population Report, showing six certified examples under four different PCGS coin numbers. Those coins are graded PR65+ Cameo, PR65, PR63 Deep Cameo (2), PR62, and PR60 (7/14).

    The obverse features a bust of Queen Liliuokalani facing left with the Latin inscription LILIUOCALANI DEI GRATIA. The reverse shows the Hawaiian islands within a raised inner-circle representing a globe, and the outer legends read HAWAIARVM REGINA 1891. AKAHI DALA. This deeply contrasted representative exhibits thick mint frost over high-relief devices and deeply mirrored fields. The interiors remain mostly brilliant, while the peripheral recesses show darker purple-blue patina. A few wispy marks are scattered over each side, visible only with magnification, and they are undistracting. (PCGS# 800185)
