The silver proof which was struck from .999 fine silver, honors King Kamehameha, the country's first King.
Stunning Hawaiian Royalty Designs
The two gold proofs in this set both bear the Gold Hawaiian Crown on the obverse. The ornate piece is joined by rim inscriptions that read, "ROYAL HAWAIIAN GOLD" and "HAPALUA CROWN," as well as an inscription that offers the piece's weight and purity, "1/2 OZ. .9999 GOLD." The obverse of the gold medals show portraits of their respective subjects. They are joined by inscriptions of the anniversary dates, "1893" and "2018," as well as rim inscriptions of their names. The Princess's proof also identifies her as the "HEIR APPARENTT."
The silver proof features a statue of King Kamehameha on the obverse. The image is taken from a famous gold and bronze statue of him that is located in front of the Hawaiian Supreme Court. His name, "KING KAMEHAMEHA," is inscribed vertically to the left, and "SOVEREIGN HAWAII" is included, also vertically, to the right. The reverse bears a traditional Hawaiian outrigger boat. The proof's weight and purity are inscribed below it, while the Hawaiian motto, "UA MAU KE EA O KA AINA I KA PONO" (The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness) arches over it along the rim.
All of the medals in this set received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70 (PF70). Only pieces that are flawless as seen under 5x magnification are awarded that grade.
