Quick Overview

June 9, 1990 was Kamehameha Day Weekend - a very special holiday in Hawaii – and an even more special as it marked another milestone as the Royal Hawaiian Mint opened its new facility in Honolulu.

The Mint located to the historic King Kalakaua Building at King & Kalakaua
in the old Kamaaina section of Honolulu. The minting operation was open and you could stand just six feet from the Mintmaster and actually see the King's coins being minted right before your eyes. Special minting exhibitions were performed at 10 AM and 2 PM every weekday. RHM is the only private mint on exhibition in the world! The Mint Museum also displays the heritage of Hawaiian coinage and a wide coins, currency and medals from around the world.

To commemorate the Mint’s Grand Opening on Kamehameha Day Weekend, the Honolulu Dala with King Kamehameha on the obverse and Diamond Head on the reverse was counter-stamped with special 13 mm dies. The obverse counter-stamp featured Queen Lilioukalani from the 1990 Royal Hawaiian Gold Issue and the reverse counter-stamp bears the legend, "Royal Hawaiian Mint - Grand Opening – 6.9.90 - Honolulu." OIP was $19.95 in a deluxe presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
