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.

  3. 1991 EDCH SILVER COMMEMORATIVE

    1991 EDCH SILVER COMMEMORATIVE

    $39.00

    On September 24, 1990 The American Stock Exchange (AMEX) officially announced its agreement with the Economic Development Corp. of Honolulu (EDCH) to design a securities trading facility in Hawaii. The Hawaiian facility was to service the Pacific Rim counties. AMEX and EDCH, a private non-profit organization funded by Hawaiian businesses, was committed to developing an electronic after-hours trading system in union with the Chicago Board Options Exchange, the Cincinnati Stock Exchange and Reuters Holdings PLC. The equity products system would operate between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. New York time. Hawaii offered the exchange an attractive time zone. A 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Hawaiian trading day would overlap with: the end of the New York trading day; proposed North American off-hours electronic trading sessions; and the beginning of Tokyo's trading day. During that time, Hawaiian market makers could make markets in exchange-traded products and derivatives. Phil Steele, senior vice president for special projects at AMEX felt the Hawaiian facility would complement an electronic system by having markets being made during the hours the system is operating. "Our basic belief is if you put something together in Hawaii, it's going to attract Pacific Rim order flow." With such great optimism for a Hawaiian trading center, the EDCH commissioned the Mint in 1991 to produce a 39mm, one ounce .999 fine silver commemorative. The obverse features the Honolulu skyline with ominous clouds that for told the future of the ill-conceived project. The reverse features a map of the Pacific Ocean and links the AMEX Hawaiian exchange would have with its major trading locations. PRIVATE ISSUE - NOT PREVIUOSLY OFFERED FOR SALE Learn More
  4. 1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY DALA IN BRONZE

    1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY DALA IN BRONZE

    $39.00

    The Commemorative the U.S. Government wouldn't issue December 7,1941 - No date in Hawaiian history has had such worldwide consequences as when the Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor on that awful Sunday morning. Over 2,000 Americans lost their lives, provoking millions to enlist in the fight against tyranny. After Pearl Harbor, America led the way to victory and has played the dominant role in world affairs ever since. The obverse of the 39mm Pearl Harbor Bronze Proof depicts U.S. sailors aboard the USS Nevada responding to the attack with the USS Arizona in the background. The reverse depicts the USS Arizona National Memorial, location of Pearl Harbor on Map of Oahu, Hawaii and the inscription: "Pearl Harbor. Keep America Alert. Day of Infamy." The 39mm proof bronze Pearl Harbor commemorative was never issued as a single item. This is a very rare item as the bronze was only issued in the three coin Gold Set.

  5. 1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY SILVER PROOF

    1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY SILVER PROOF

    $55.00

    The Commemorative the U.S. Government wouldn't issue Sunday morning, December 7th, 1941: The day that will live in infamy begins serenely. Soldiers and airman at Hickam Field are at morning mess. Sailors and marines at Pearl Harbor have light duty schedules. False alerts and training exercises over the past month have frazzled nerves and sapped morale, but fluffy clouds in the azure sky and warm Pacific sea breezes invite the men to relax and refresh themselves. But the morning calm is deceptive. The fluffy clouds conceal a deadly danger that is already descending on the vulnerable fleet. Sailors watch in disbelief as the first torpedoes rip into the ships along Battleship Row and the first casualties fall. Then the training kicks in. Resistance builds and stiffens. Even men who have never fired a shot in anger, man machine guns and open fire. One of them, a Chaplin, utters one of the many memorable phrases of that fateful day, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition”. Two hours and twenty minutes later, it is over. The Japanese planes and their pilots return to their carriers. Ahead of them a delirious Japan waits to lavish honors on them for their incredible victory. Behind them, lie a sunken fleet and a United States at war. The attack on Pearl Harbor moved millions of Americans to enlist in the fight against tyranny. America was victorious and became more powerful than anyone could have imagined. So powerful that America was named the world’s first “Superpower” and has had a dominant role in world affairs ever since. The 1991 Official Pearl Harbor 50th Anniversary commemorative was authorized by the Pearl Harbor Survivor's Association. The obverse of the 39mm proof featured U.S. sailors aboard the USS Nevada defending Pearl Harbor against the attack with the USS Arizona in the background. The reverse depicts the USS Arizona National Memorial, location of Pearl Harbor on an outline of the Island of Oahu, Hawaii and the inscription: "Pearl Harbor. Keep America Alert. Day of Infamy."

  6. 1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY- ERROR

    1991 PEARL HARBOR 50TH ANNIVERSARY- ERROR

    $115.00

    Shortly before the 50th Anniversary Pearl Harbor commemorative was scheduled for release, the Mint was shocked to learn the anti-aircraft gun depicted on the obverse of the first Pearl Harbor Dalas was a 50mm machine gun instead of a water-cooled 50 caliber Browning! Just imagine! Such an error was simply not acceptable, expressly on the Official Pearl Harbor commemorative honoring “The men who gave their lives so that Liberty shall live". It had to be changed. Then upon closer examination two other errors were discovered. The gunner's helmet, although issued during WWII, was not in use at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack. And the placement of the USS Nevada in relation to the USS Arizona was also too close. So, at great expense and loss of sales, the Mint's engraver quickly re-cut a new die that corrected the helmet, adjusted the location of the USS Nevada and changed the late model anti-aircraft machine gun to the Pre-WWII water-cooled 50 caliber Browning. Finally, the Mint was back in production. In January 1992, the 1,367 Pearl Harbor Errors were offered to anybody who had ordered a Pearl Harbor Dala. OIP for the Pearl Harbor Error that contained one ounce of .999 fine silver was $34. The Errors sold-out within a week. RE: MINTLINE JANUARY 1992 Learn More

  8. 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
  9. 1991 PRINCESS KAIULANI SILVER DALA

    1991 PRINCESS KAIULANI SILVER DALA

    $89.00

    October 16,1875 was a joyous day throughout the Kingdom of Hawaii. A princess had been born and it was apparent even then that she would be exceptionally beautiful, Victoria Kaiulani. 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. One of her admirers, a wealthy Englishman, Reginald Huth, was so taken by her beauty that he minted a private coin honoring her. The 1991 Princess Kaiulani Dala was proof minted in one ounce of .999 fine silver. OIP was $29.00 RE: MINTLINE OCTOBER 1991 Learn More
