    1893 Liliuokalani Hawaii Dollar Pattern PR63 Cameo

    1893 $1 Huth Hawaii Silver Dollar PR63 Cameo NGC. 2MH-1. The obverse features a mature, but youthful 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 by a group of American businessmen and, despite several years of appeals to the United States, never regained the throne. Several of Liliuokalani's musical compositions are enjoyed by Hawaiians to this day. A mere 50 pieces of these beautifully designed Liliuokalani patterns are believed to have been struck. This specimen is accented in natural coppery-gold and sea-green shades, with just a few minor frost breaks visible under magnification. Survivors are eagerly sought by both numismatic enthusiasts and collectors of Hawaiiana alike. According to Medcalf, Reginald Huth was a wealthy British coin collector who enlisted Pinches & Co. of London to produce a select quantity of high quality Hawaiian medals in various metals. Listed in Medcalf & Russell's Hawaiian Money Standard Catalog, 2nd Edition, 1991 as 2MH-1. Listed in Unusual World Coins, Third Edition (1992) by Colin R. Bruce II as XM1. (#10995) (NGC ID# 2TGD, PCGS# 10995)
