The Royal Issues feature King Kalakaua, Queen Liliuokalani and Princess Kaiulani. From Iolani Palace to the pageantry of the Kingdom of Hawaii with its silver coinage by King Kalakaua in 1883, the Royal Issues commemorate the most important events of the Hawaiian Kingdom in medallic art. From the stunning detail in the King Kalakaua, Queen Liliuokalani and Princess Kaiulani Gold five coin sets to the original Gold Crown design and the Platinum Puela by the Mint, the Royal Issues testify to the unique beauty of the Hawaiian coinage by the Royal Hawaiian Mint.

    $79.00

The year to "Celebrate and commemorate the Hawaiian culture.” The 1987 Ho'olako Dala was designated "The Official Coin" by Tommy Kaulukukui and the Ho'olako Committee. The design is an exciting example of contemporary Hawaiian art that symbolizes the birth of Hawaii - Born of Wakea (Sky) and Papa (Earth) the design was created by noted artist Ms. Momi Cazimero. Since only a few collectors were able to get the “Kamehameha the Great” obverse design in 1986, it was fittingly chosen as the obverse for the 1987 Ho’olako Dala - Year of the Hawaiian. The First 1000 Silver Ho’olako Dalas were numbered and were reserved exclusively for MintLine collectors at the original issue price of $29 each. A few Gold Ho'olako Dalas were numbered and presented in handcrafted Koa wood cases with a Certificate of Authentic for $995.00.

  7. 1991 PRINCESS KAIULANI PLATINUM HAPAUMI PUELA

    1991 PRINCESS KAIULANI PLATINUM HAPAUMI PUELA

    $550.00

    In 1988 the Mint struck a few trial platinum specimens, but never considered producing a platinum issue until the beautiful Princess Dala dies were in hand. So in 1991, BVNH selected the new 17mm one tenth ounce Princess die to test the minting qualities of platinum in preparation for a future platinum issue. A special platinum reverse “hapaumi” (one tenth of an ounce) die was cut that featured the Hawaii Puela that was the center-most design element of the Hawaii Crest that was the center-most element in the Hawaii Coat of Arms. The idea was to use the most sacred symbol, the Puela, with the most precious of the precious metals. Everything worked great. The test platinum minting was a success. But it was not until 1997 that the complete Hawaiian Platinum Puela would be issued in all five sizes. The 1991 Princess Puela platinum specimens weigh one tenth of an ounce of .9995 fine platinum. These trial strike Hapaumis have never been released. NOT PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR SALE Learn More

Her parents, her family and her future subjects, adored the only child of Archibald Scott Cleghorn. She was expected to lead a storybook life. But in 1887 Likelike died suddenly and Kaiulani's happiness was clouded by a vision her mother had on her deathbed: “that Kaiulani would live far away...would never marry...and never be queen.” The first part of her mother's prophesy was realized when Kaiulani was sent to England to further her education. When King Kalakaua died in 1891, Liliuokalani proclaimed Princess Kaiulani "Heir Apparent" to the Hawaiian Throne on March 9,1891. While she was living in England, Princess Kaiulani was the toast of the rich and royal.
