Ron Guth:

In 1882, the Haiku Sugar Plantation issued copper tokens in the value of 1 Rial. Reportedly, this was the equivalent of a Spanish Real, or roughly a day's wage for plantation workers.

The Haiku Sugar Company operated a plantation in Wailuku on the Hawaiian island of Maui from 1858 until 1905 when it merged with the Paia Plantation to form the Maui Agricultural Company. Today, it remains the site of the Haiku Sugar Mill, whose ruins are used to host weddings and catered events.

The 1882 Haiku 1 Rial is scarce, though it is one of the more accessible Hawaiian tokens. Mint State examples are known up to MS65 and only a single example as been found with enough original color to be labelled Red and Brown.
