Quick Overview

In January 1986 The Hawaiian Mint declared bankruptcy under circumstances beyond its control. Later in the year, it issued one last coin to pay off its creditors - the first Hawaii Dala to feature Kamehameha the Great, who more than any other person in Hawaiian history exemplifies the essence of Hawaii’s greatness.

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. Each Dala was individually numbered on the edge with "1 oz. 999 fine silver" so as not to distract from the design. The original issue price was $29 each, packaged in a velvet bag with a certificate of authenticity.
