Honolulu Coin Club Medals

Only the 1990 Honolulu Coin Club 35th Anniversary medal (2M-182) is cataloged in the book, Hawaiian Money:  Standard Catalog, 2nd edition, 1991,  by Medcalf and Russell (M&R).

I used the term “only”, since there are two prior medals not cataloged in M&R. The 25th Anniversary and 30th Anniversary was not cataloged.

There are actually 4 Honolulu Coin Club medals that were not included in  the 1991 M&R  catalog.

In the book, Honolulu Coin Club Collectibles Catalog (and Related Items), 1984 , by Kam & Matsuda, they were assigned the following catalog numbers:

KMM-1 – 26 mm, undetermined metal, antique finish, mintage of less than 100
