    1893 Princess Kailulani 'Silver Dollar'
    Reginald Huth Private Pattern, PR63
    One Dolphin, Medcalf 2MH-3

    1893 $1 Princess Kailulani Pattern Silver Dollar, M. 2MH-3, PR63 PCGS. Dated 1893 but struck in 1895. The obverse features Princess Kaiulani, facing right, one dolphin below the bust. A map of the Hawaiian Islands set on the globe background of the Pacific Ocean centers the reverse. Reginald Huth's Princess Kaiulani medal was produced in honor of her 18th birthday. Listed in Unusual World Coins, Third Edition (1992) by Colin R. Bruce II as XM3. The latter reference estimates a mintage of 20 pieces. Metcalf states that varieties 2MH-3 and 2MH-5 had a combined production of 50 pieces. As of (3/17), PCGS has certified only two pieces in all grades, and both are imaged at PCGSCoinFacts.com. The present specimen displays rich walnut-brown toning with peripheral indications of aquamarine and magenta-red. The strike is precise, and the eye appeal surpasses the numerical grade. (Variety PCGS# 509649, Base PCGS# 726252)
