HISTORY BEHIND THIS RARE AND UNIQUE, 1994 PRINCESS KAIULANI MAHALO DALA: In 1994, I was the author of the best-selling book, (Book Title). My book discusses the sovereignty among the American people. I also became involved in the Hawaiian Sovereignty movement after President Clinton signed the November 23, 1993 U.S. Public Law 103-150 (107 Stat. 1510)), apologizing to Native Hawaiians on behalf of the people of the United States for the illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii on January 17, 1893 and Queen Liliuokalani, the last reigning monarch of the Hawaiian islands, was imprisoned in Iolani Palace. I wrote about this topic in one of my (NewsLetter Title)  newsletters and was invited, by the Hawaiian people to speak. After my well received speech the Hawaiian Mint Master Bernard von NotHaus, took me on a personal tour of the Royal Hawaiian Mint. Amazingly he allowed me to watch the unique multi-strike proof minting of this unique Princess Dala, I believe the special “Mahalo Dala” backing was his way of thanking me for my support of the Hawaiian Sovereignty movement.

On February 20, 2014, I, (Your Full Name) sold The Meredith Princess Kaiulani Mahalo Dala to Darryl A. Gomez.
