Quick Overview

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
