Behold, the trifecta of The Aloha State in Gold on Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver, and Bronze.
I’m in the process of writing a book with a chapter named “Alapi’i Collecting”. This is one of the dimensions. Source sets identified (to be revealed in my book.)
M&R got 2M-163 (39mm silver) mintage right, unfortunately it’s a proof and I have to assign it a THN catalog number. As for the bronze and gold on sterling silver mintages, the mintages are reversed, and I have to assign it a THN catalog number also.
The acquisition of the bronze medal was the hardest with a miniscule mintage of 155.
YES ! ONLY 155.
The 155 mintage should raise a red flag to collectors as this population rates a R-5 (on Fuld Rarity Scale estimated population between 76 thru 200).
