Quick Overview

The design of the 1993 Kamehameha Sovereign proved so popular that the Mint re-issued it in 1998. The obverse featured the famous statue of Kamehameha that was so revered that the Mint never featured it on any issues until the 1993 Kamehameha Overthrow/Sovereign commemorative, almost twenty years after the Mint was founded! Beneath his feet, the date 1998, symbolizes Kamehameha’s achievements that still live in the hearts of the Hawaiian people, a century after the Kingdom of Hawaii was overthrown.

The Kala Mo’i reverse features a contemporary heraldic design of ancient symbols. The canoe symbolizes the arrival of the Hawaiians, from the past and into the future and with Kamehameha's war god, Ka'ilimoku, at the bow, the Palaoa of the ALII (royalty) astern an the KAHILI with crossed spears inside the five sided PUELA, the ancient banner was flown from the highest reigning chief's canoe as an emblem of authority. The Kala Mo’i reverse design is a legendary modern numismatic icon.
