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).
