Why add this 3-Piece Royal Hawaiian Mint King Kalakaua I 125th Anniversary Gold + Silver Proof Medal Set to your collection?
Hawaii is one of the few places that is on the bucket list of nearly everyone who has one around the world. The islands have an unparalleled allure for their stunning beauty and reputed laid back lifestyle. For a brief time, the islands were united under royalty. That ended when the United States overthrew the monarch. The islands would go on to become a US territory and then a state. This set was issued by the Royal Hawaiian Mint to mark the 125th anniversary of the end of the kingdom. It consists of two half oz. gold proofs minted in .9999 gold, and a one ounce silver proof, which is .999 fine. The coins have been certified GEM Proof by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
Historic Hawaiian Royalty Designs
Each of the obverse designs features a different Hawaiian royal. The silver piece features King Kamehameha I, the first king of a united Hawaii. The design comes from a bronze and gold statue of him that stands near the Hawaiian State Supreme Court. Inscriptions to his left and right read, "KING KAMEHAMEHA" and "SOVEREIGN HAWAII," respectively. The obverses of the two gold medals bear the names portraits of Queen Liliuokalani and Princess Kailulani, the latter of which is identified as the heir apparent.
On the reverse of the silver proof is a traditional Hawaiian outrigger boat. It is joined by an inscription of the piece's weight and purity, as well as the Hawaiian motto in its native language. The motto means, "The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness." The gold medals share a common reverse design, the Gold Hawaiian Crown. Rim inscriptions read, "ROYAL HAWAIIAN GOLD HAPALUA CROWN," while an inscription just below the crown offers each medal's weight and purity.
