    1893 Princess Kailulani Silver Dollar
    Medcalf 2MH-3, AU58
    Rare Reginald Huth Issue

    1893 $1 Princess Kailulani Pattern Silver Dollar, Medcalf 2MH-3, AU58 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. The present untoned piece retains substantial prooflike field flash. Minor contact marks and hairlines confirm limited non-collector handling. (PCGS# 726252)
