Not the Kingdom of Hawaii silver coins (dollar, half-dollar, quarter, dime, nor 12-1/2 cents)!
Not the Territory of Hawaii Hawaiian Sesquicentennial half dollar!
Not the Hawaii Statehood quarter!
It’s Gomez DDE-08 (M&R 2M-94) struck in 1960 as being the first U.S. Mint product with the State of Hawaii as a design element. It took just 10 months after becoming the 50th State. (Alaska originally was to have a POTUS appreciation medal, but it was cancelled.
The image below is part of my collection of POTUS Appreciation medals (I have four more medals not in the picture).
Other facts based on my ongoing POTUS appreciation medal research.

I am one of the original crowdfunding investors that helped Uncle Clay and Bronson!
I supported the effort to reclaim valuable agricultural land from Hawaii’s sugar years and convert it into a natural-system based farm.
Listed in Waifs in Gold Boots (aka Royal Hawaiian Mint database). This is the Hawaiian Crown issue (one of four designs). The original issue price was $95 for the four different designs.
Not really a coin. It’s a RHM issued “POG”. However, the design elements are similar to those used on the gold coins.
42 mm, 24kt gold on thick stock paper.
Item sold on eBay for $21.50 on 2/28/2015.
