Royal Museum Needs Help

MEC2117 (link is on the left)

I assisted.

32 mm is known only to be struck in bright bronze. This white metal specimen is unknown and not previously documented.

Issued in 1976 by the Hawaiian Trading Company. Designed by Jim Dean. Engraver is E.W (only initials known). Speculative belief of HM hallmark is that it stands for “The Hamilton Mint”.
