Hawaiian Money – It’s Like Being There
by Ron Guth

The mention of the word Hawaii evokes images and memories of tropical islands, gentle tradewinds, lush greenery, luaus, hula dances, and pure, simple relaxation. For those of us in numismatics, our natural tendency is to think of the coins that were used at various times on one or more of the Hawaiian Islands.

Numismatic Expert Ron Guth connects the history of early Hawaiian coinage and the U.S. Mint.
