S$1 Hawaii 1883 AU 53 PCGS
Good luster. Well struck. Minute tocks and scuffs on both sides. This is one of the five official issues minted for the Kingdom of Hawaii. United States Mint Chief Engraver, Charles Barber, began preparing the master dies and hubs for the coinage in 1881. These dies would later be modified by Mint Director Horatio C. Burchard. The coins for circulation were minted in San Francisco between November 1883 to June 1884 (all were dated 1883).The coinage was not legal tender after 1900, when the islands became a United States territory. Mint records indicate 500,000 coins were minted, but 453,622 were melted, leaving a circulation population of 46,378.
