Quick Overview

Two US Presidents addressing the same event - the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii:

"... By an act of war... the Government of a feeble but friendly and confiding people has been overthrown. A substantial wrong has thus been done which a due regard for our national character as well as the rights of the injured people requires we should endeavor to repair."
Message to Congress from President Grover Cleveland - December 18, 1893

"The Congress... apologizes to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the people of the United States for the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii... with the participation of agents and citizens of the United States, and the deprivation of the rights of Native Hawaiians to self-determination.
Joint resolution of Congress, signed by President Bill Clinton - November 23, 1993

Two Presidents... 100 years apart announced the same conclusion. The participation by agents of the United States government, including the U.S. Navy and Marine military units in the overthrow of the lawful government of Hawaii was not only blatantly wrong, but also injurious to the reputation and prestige of the American people and their government. It has taken 100 years, but the time has come to right this grievous wrong.

To mark this historic event, Royal Hawaiian Mint created the Apology Dala. The obverse features the profile of President Bill Clinton. The reverse carries the inscription, "MIHI" (Apology). Resolved by Congress and signed by President Clinton, Senate joint Resolution 19 acknowledges and apologizes for the participation in the illegal overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1893. The inscription is emblazoned over a map of the Hawaiian Island. OIP of the one ounce .999 fine silver Apology Dala was $39.00.
