Duke Kahanamoku Statue Dedication Medal?

Tried to locate supporting information on a Duke token listed on ebay. None.  The blank reverse is an engraving pad. High probability its an appreciation medal of some sort (maybe for donors that made the statue possible?). It could even be a tourist souvenir.  I’m still looking into this token/medal….

Here is a very detailed thesis I found. Its a very good read on the Duke.
