    2014 KING KAMEHAMEHA, MADAME PELE AND CAPTAIN COOK - SILVER DALA SET

    $217.00

    TWO CENTURIES AGO Three historic figures interacted to unite the Hawaiian Islands: KING KAMEHAMEHA, First King of Hawaii 1753 - 1819 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. MADAME PELE, The Volcano Goddess of Fire, Honored and Respected in Hawaiian Legends According to old Hawaiian legends, Pele came to the Island of Hawaii - a giant land - to live in peace of fiery outbursts. "Pele" came to mean the Goddess of Fire, a volcano, or any lava eruption. Pele was often pictured as a strange woman with a warm heart and a fiery temper. She is the virulent woman of flame - the symbol of youth, beauty and lore. One who's lava intervened to help Kamehameha in one of his many battles to unite The Hawaiian Islands. In recent times, Madame Pele - the world's most active volcano goddess - has erupted in the Kilauea Volcano and snow-capped Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano. CAPTAIN JAMES COOK, One of the Greatest and Most Enlightened Western Discoverers, 1728 - 1779 At his birth in 1728, James Cook had poor prospects of receiving high tributes. His schooling ended at 12. He volunteered for the British navy late and served as a commissioned officer for only ten years. Yet in those ten years, Captain James Cook discovered the cure for scurvy and lead three great voyages: Twice around the world in the "Endeavour" from 1768 to 1771, covering the entire South Pacific Ocean, charted every major landfall and spoke Polynesian. In 1776, Cook returned to the Pacific Ocean in the Resolution on his third voyage and discovered The Hawaiian Islands on January 20, 1778. Learn More

    2014 COPPER PIEDFORT SET

    $299.00

    In commemoration of the Royal Hawaiian Mint 40th anniversary, a special six piece copper Piedfort Collection was struck from the original 1976 Kamehameha die, 1977 Madame Pele die, 1978 Captain James Cook die and their respective reverse dies. The original designs were inspired by the two century old legend that when Kamehameha was unifying the Hawaii Islands, Madame Pele, the volcano Goddess, sent a lava flow to help Kamehameha win an important battle and Captain James Cook, the enlightened British discoverer of the Hawaiian Island, discussed military tactics with Kamehameha when he stayed overnight on board his ship, the Resolution. The Piedfort Collection is unique because piedforts are extra thick planchets and the original dies were hand cut at the actual 21mm die size with interchangeable inner dies. Like the classic engravers from the Greek and Roman tradition, the original dies show a wonderful handmanship by master engraver, Nick Lenches. The six piece Piedfort Collection consists of three gold coin weights: 1) Kamehameha obverse with Ahualoa Land Bank and AU1GR inner die reverse, 2) Madame Pele obverse with Volcano Island Bank and AU2-1/2GR inner die reverse and 3) Captain Cook obverse with Kona Coast Bank with AU5GR inner die reverse.
