    1891 Hawaii Pattern Silver Dollar, PR61
    Struck in 1893 by Reginald Huth
    Queen Liliuokalani Type

    1891 Huth Hawaii Silver Dollar PR62 NGC. Medcalf 2MH-1. The obverse features a young Queen Liliuokalani, facing left. A map of the Hawaiian Islands set in the frosted globe background of the Pacific Ocean centers the reverse. The queen was deposed in January 1893 and Hawaii became a U.S. territory instead of a monarchy. A mere 50 pieces of these beautifully designed Liliuokalani patterns are believed to have been struck, with Reginald Huth behind the issue. Survivors are eager sought by both numismatic enthusiasts and collectors of Hawaiiana alike. This is an intricately specimen with evident cameo contrast despite to light to medium caramel-gold toning. The fields display faint hairlines and we note a single faded thin mark above the left (facing) shoulder. Listed in Unusual World Coins, Third Edition (1992) by Colin R. Bruce II as XM1.
