I received a courtesy email from the Royal Hawaiian Mint on the status of my orders. Yes, orders…plural.
If you read the website properly there is a 15 – 30 day lead time in fulfilling orders.I won’t reveal what I ordered in this blog. But, I did my research and ordered a low mintage coins and ordered extra coin stock for possible trading or resale.
As a hint to my readers….
The 1993 Eisenhower dollar with the “ALOHA MONEY” counter stamped actually is available for other years. If you noticed the images at the RHM website, a 1976 Bicentennial Eisenhower dollar is shown (for the 1993 Eisenhower dollar item). I made an inquiry and requested a 1976 Bicentennial Eisenhower dollar.
Hmmm…A goal for a complete set of Eisenhower dollars all with the “ALOHA MONEY” counter stamped?
Do the math based on the RHM database:
- 275 Eisenhower dollars with “ALOHA MONEY” counter stamp
- Eisenhower dollars were issued from 1971 – 1978
It will be an interesting set to complete…And email below confirms that the counter stamped Eisenhower dollar dates are actually random!
