|In 1883, the United States Mint struck silver coinage for the Kingdom of Hawaii. The coins were designed by Charles Barber and were struck at the San Francisco Mint. Here is an 1883 Hawaii Kalakaua Akahi Dala Silver Dollar which has been graded AU55+ by PCGS. The coin is a bright white and lustrous example that has very strong cartwheel luster on both sides. The piece is strongly struck with just a touch of wear evident on the highest points of the design. The fields on both sides are marked up with numerous small hits and light hairlines, none of which are major or distracting. This example is not your average AU graded Hawaii Dollar as it is one of those coins that has the overall look of a much higher graded specimen, but the technical wear and light hairlines present which limit the numerical grade. A wonderful specimen of the 1883 Hawaii Silver Dollar with great overall eye appeal.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
