Quick Overview

World War II began for Americans at Pearl Harbor, with Japan's devastating attack. It ended in Japan, after atomic bombs destroyed two cities.

Unconditional surrender — absolute victory. On V-J Day, the airwaves boomed out a single message that would save millions of lives, "Cease fire ... CEASE FIRE ... the war is over." And headlines across America blazoned, "VICTORY!" V-J Day triggered a massive celebration unlike any before, or since — a tremendous outpouring of joy that will never be forgotten.

On September 2, 1945, Japan's unconditional surrender was signed the quarterdeck of the USS Missouri, anchored in Tokyo Bay. General Douglas MacArthur, Supreme Allied Commander of the Pacific Theatre, voiced the official end of World War II 'to a worldwide radio audience. He then uttered the hope for lasting peace — that another such war would never be fought. "The utter destructiveness of war now blots out this alternative".

The Royal Hawaiian Mint was honored to be authorized by the State of Hawaii to mint the official commemoratives for the end of World War II. Each silver coin contained one full ounce of .999 fine silver - exceeding the U.S. Mint specifications of their WWII commemoratives that had three quarters of an ounce of fine silver. OIP for the ounce 999 fine silver V-J Dala was $35.00.
