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

    1982 KING KALAKAUA SILVER KALA DALA

    $89.00

    A full year before the centennial of the King Kalakaua coinage of 1883, BVNH was already planning to do an outstanding job on the upcoming Centennial Dala. The Kala Dala was created to work out any minting problems for the Mint’s first major 39mm size issue in preparation for minting a fantastic Silver Centennial Dala and the Hawaii Gold Crown of original design. In so doing, quite a collectors' piece was created. RE: MINTLINE OCTOBER 1987 Learn More
  5. 1982 KING KALAKAUA SILVER KALA DALA - FIRST DAY OF ISSUE

    1982 KING KALAKAUA SILVER KALA DALA - FIRST DAY OF ISSUE

    $180.00

    KALA DALA DAY - December 5, 1981: The first Champagne Party was in full swing when BVNH struck Hawaii's very first one ounce silver coin ever minted in Hawaii: the Kala Dala (Hawaiian for Silver Dollar). Although not known at the time, the Kala Dala was the first “Dala” of an annual issue that continues today. Friends, neighbors and collectors joined Bernard and Telle Presley for the first Mint party in the little town of Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Mint facility only measured 9 by 11 feet and the 600-ton coining press consumed most of the room. The small space and the sheer sound of the press prohibited most people to venture inside. To commemorate such a historic occasion, BVNH made a hallmark made out of a 16-penny nail and heat treated it in a bucket of water. He then hand-stamped the first 100 Kala Dalas with the "First Day of Issue" (FDI) stamp! The hundred Kala Dalas that featured King Kalakaua were sold for $13.50 each as quickly as BVNH could mint them. A total of 300 FDI's were minted that day. The Kala Dala was minted as a trial exercise in preparation for minting the Centennial Dala to commemorate the King Kalakaua Issue of 1883 - Hawaii's only coinage to circulate as legal tender.

    1986 KING KAMEHAMEHA SILVER HAWAII DALA

In commemoration of Hawaii's greatest ruler, the 1986 Hawaii Dala features the great statue of King Kamehameha that is located across King Street from lolani Palace. The iconic Kamehameha statue is the symbol for both unification and aloha for which Kamehameha was master of both. He turned Hawaii towards peace after he united the Hawaiian Islands through conquest in 1810. The obverse die was meticulously created from this popular statue to capture every fine detail. The reverse die dated 1986 features the quote: He more than any other person in Hawaiian history exemplifies the essence of Hawaii’s greatness. The stunning "proof" one ounce .999 fine silver 1986 Hawaii Dala was limited to 500 coins.
