Created a blog at my NGC Journal. It can see seen at
Excellent NFL brass coin with enamel.
Busy with work, but I’ve been acquiring specimens.
It took some time for me to figure this out (slaps forehead). I should have been more observant. The initials LB stand for designer Luigi Badia.
I know of two RHM products with his initials on the obverse.
1992 dated Princess Kaiulani 1/10 oz silver
1991 King Kalakaua Akahi Dala 1/oz silver
Here is a plaster model of the obverse die with the LB initials.
A previous undocumented 1994 Dated Princess Kaiulani Dala variety was identified. Undocumented in RHM database and my draft Princess Kaiulani book. The COA indicates it was struck in 2010. I just purchased two for my wife’s Princess Kaiulani collection. Three were being sold on eBay by Hawaiian Island Stamp and Coin. As of 2/17/2017, 8:40 Pm EST one is still available.
There are a total of six types of 1994 dated Princess Kaiulani 39 mm silver dala. Each is identified by its reverse die.
- Reverse: Akahi Dala
- Reverse: Princess Dala
- Reverse: Hawaii Dala
- Reverse: Mahalo Dala
- Reverse: $10 Dala
- Reverse: Aloha Dala
