There are 7 souvenir cards listed in Medcalf & Russell 2nd edition book, page 20.
One is not listed as there are 8 souvenir cards (the missing one is dated January 1989). 2BN-7 is the newest and dated August 1989. The missing 2BN is the Florida United Numismatists, Inc. Five Dollar Gold Certificate (see bottom image).
Sneak peak of an exhibit I’m developing. It has the actual magazine with the first ad ever that advertises these “pocket coins”. Not shown is a discovery that I made of a new variety.
See https://coins.www.collectors-society.com/WCM/CoinCustomSetView.aspx?s=12054 for the results of my original research.
Another trifecta in the Maui Coin Club (MCC) medals (silver, bronze, and aluminum) series. This is the 1978 MCC medals.
I’m venturing a guess that these MCC medals predates 2M-80 thru 2M-83 (struck to celebrate the 100th anniversary memorial of Saint Damien). However, the 1976 Molokai Municipal dollar seems to be the earliest Hawaiian numismatic item to have an image of Saint Damien.
Each of the medals mentioned would make an interesting exhibit
The MCC medals are incorrectly sized in Medcalf & Russell as 40 mm (it’s actually 38 mm).
A cool item in my collection is a 1980 Maui Coin Club medal in its original manufacturer holder – Pressed Metal Products. Yes, it’s a Canadian struck medal. See Medcalf & Russell book on page 120. Items in their original holder command a premium by specialists.
Only 20 sets can be recreated (only 20 Morgan dollars and 20 Peace dollars were counterstamp). 275 Eisenhower dollars were struck and sold in 6 piece coin sets ($1, 50c, 25c, 10c, 5c, and 1c).
Both the Peace and Eisenhower are unlisted by Krause Publication (KP). The Morgan is identified as X# MB74 (KP lists the date as only 1883 (KP needs to update this to reflect other years)).
These are “working sample” specimens I purchased from the original manufacturer a few years ago (I have a letter of provenance from the president of the company that states these are working samples and identifies me as the first purchaser). To the left is the bronze and the right is aluminum.
As you can plainly see the aluminum is thick (8 mm). This is the only known thick variety of 2M-311 in existence.
This is an interesting postal cover the combines philately and numismatics. It’s franking indicates Hawaiian Village Station (location of the convention). The coin is a miniature Saint-Gaudens double eagle.
