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).

  • THN-FM-SOU-01, Hawaii The Aloha State, 39mm, Gold on Sterling Silver, proof, mintage 1,303
  • THN-FM-SOU-02, Hawaii The Aloha State, 39mm, Sterling Silver, proof, mintage 866
  • THN-FM-SOU-03, Hawaii The Aloha State, 39mm, Bronze, proof,  mintage 155
