The Hawaiiana Numismatist ™

26 Out of the Top 40 Rarities are missing in 1991 Medcalf & Russell Book

Knowledge is power. Especially in numismatics. There are a total of 80 Hawaii related Franklin Mint Rounds (based on my upcoming re-release of my book).

Below is a breakdown of the 40 rarest Franklin Mint Rounds.  The rows identified with “unlisted” indicates it’s unlisted in the 1991 Medcalf & Russell book. And yes there are 26 of the 40 not listed in the Medcalf & Russel book. If you don’t have the full Hawaiian numismatic picture, you are collecting at a disadvantage and missing collecting  opportunities.

Now you need the book that fully catalogs  the Franklin Mint issues (release date is still TBD). https://thehawaiiananumismatist.com/2015/01/25/book-update-hawaiiana-numismatic-issues-of-the-franklin-mint-medals-coins-and-ingots/
