Royal Hawaiian Mint – 1992 Gold Salute 1/10 Ounce Gold

The Hawaiiana Numismatic buying frenzy on eBay missed this gem.

It was also missed by Liberty Dollar collectors.

A scant mintage of 20 by the Royal Hawaiian Mint.

Yes…only 20 specimens struck.

From my research, this coin is the precursor to the NORFED Miss Liberty obverse design by Bernard von NotHaus.

In 1998, the first NORFED Liberty Dollars were issued (listed in the RHM database as 1998 Silver Liberty with Shelter System’s logo).
