1994 Princess Kaiulani Save the Ocean 1/20 Gold

This is a tough coin to locate. Most of the specimens I’ve seen were ex-jewelry. I purchased it on the spot today.  It does not look like an ex-jewelry specimen. Mintage 225.

The 1/20 oz and 1/10 oz  Princess Kaiulani obverse are notoriously weakly struck from a worn-out die.

In the images you can see the deterioration of the obverse die. Images are from seller eBay seller zeslain_1.
