THE 2014 HAWAIIAN MINT PIEDFORT SET
FIRST TIME OFFERED FOR SALE The Royal Hawaiian Mint's fortieth anniversary was commemorated with the three piece The Hawaiian Mint Set with Kamehameha, Madame Pele and Captain Cook with THE HAWAIIAN MINT and $ reverse. The THM/$ Set is unique because the three medals were struck from the original 1976, 1977 and 1978 dies that were hand engraved at the actual 21mm die size and minted on special copper piedforts that are extra thick planchets. The three obverses features: 1) Kamehameha who was blessed in battle by Madame Pele, the Volcano Goddess, discussed military strategy with Captain Cook and proved to be a true father of his people. 2) Madame Pele who is Hawaii’s Volcano Goddess and resides in Kilauea in the world's most active volcano and Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano. 3) Captain James Cook, who led three great voyages to the Pacific Ocean, charted every major landfall, spoke Polynesian and discovered Hawaii on January 20, 1778. The common reverse features THE HAWAIIAN MINT and the dollar sign. We are offering the three individually packaged medals for the special price of $65.
