Royal Hawaiian Mint

Original Mint Masterpieces Since 1974

Original Issues

Original Issues

The Original Issues commemorate the three historic figures that interacted to unite Hawaii and establish the Kingdom of Hawaii. Two centuries ago, while Kamehameha was unifying the Hawaii Islands, a lava flow by Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess, aided Kamehameha to win an important battle and Captain James Cook, the enlightened British who discoverer of the Hawaiian Island, discussed military tactics with Kamehameha when he stayed overnight onboard his ship, the Resolution. These historic events inspired the Original Issues and were the sole mintage for the first six years of the Mint. The packaging for the original issues - minted in Hawaii from unique hand engraved dies - is equally exquisite with miniature booklets, triangular wood plaques and Koa wood frames.

    Kamehameha, more than any other person in the history of the Hawaiian people, exemplifies the essence of Hawaii's greatness. Kamehameha, the first King of Hawaii, united the Hawaiian Islands with a flotilla of schooners, cannons and white men in 1795. Blessed in battle by Madame Pele, the Volcano Goddess, Kamehameha was the only Hawaiian to stay overnight aboard Captain Cook’s ship and the first Hawaiian to accept gold and silver coins for exchange. He was a true father of his people and maintained a conservative respect for the old traditions. His plan was to amass so much power that he would never use any of it. He succeeded. Learn More
