Quick Overview

President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Hawaiian Statehood Act on March 18, 1959, thereby making Hawaii the 50th State. Hawaii's Star was formally added to the flag on July 4th, 1960.

The Fiftieth Star of the Union is commemorated with the 1989 Hawaii Dala . The Limited Edition features a new portrait of Kamehameha on the obverse with the Hawaiian head dress and an unusually strong STAR design for the 30th anniversary of Statehood on the reverse.

The obverse shows the famous statue of King Kamehameha as he watches Hawaii was transformed from tribal society to the "Cross Roads of the Pacific". The reverse features the State Flag of Hawaii and the 50 star American flag. The big central star is for Hawaii, the STAR of the Pacific.

The dies were a particularly difficult experience. Both the obverse and reverse had to be re-engraved twice, but the final the results captured the unusual design. Check out the great detailed engraving on the flags.

The 30th Anniversary of Hawaii Statehood Commemorative was limited to only 2500 Silver Dalas that measure 39mm, contain one full ounce of .999 fine silver and packaged in a box with a certificate of authenticity for $15.95 each.

This is the eighth Annual Dala issued since the Mint’s first Kaladala in 1982 that commemorated the first dalas by King Kalakaua in 1883 – the only legal tender coinage issued by the Kingdom of Hawaii.
