Republic of Hawaii Souvenir Cards

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).

2M-310 and 2M-311 Father (now Saint) Damien

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).

2M-314 in Manufacturer Holder

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.
