Discovery: 1997 Princess Ka'iulani 1/10 oz Gold Hapaumi Repunched Date

Exonumia | DrDarryl

I'm working a side project to  catalog the Royal Hawaiian Mint issues relating to Crown Princess Ka'iulani of the Kingdom Hawai'i. 

This catalog is roughly 90% complete. However, I spotted what seems to be a new variety being listed at an online  auction website.

I purchased this specimen to confirm and document this variety. I was right. I spotted this repunched date a mile away (auction image was not of high quality).

I snapped a few close-up pictures after I received the specimen.  This is the second repunched date identified in the Crown Princess Ka'iulani of the Kingdom Hawai'i issues by the Royal Hawaiian Mint.

Just a stunning coin. Thanks for the blog, always enjoyable.


Level 7

Beautiful coin can't deny that. There are thousands of relaunched dates. The grading companies won't list it as a variety unless it's a major problem. They must of changed there policy. I sent a coin honouring the anniversary of Pearl Harbour they returned it saying they do not grade coins from that mint. So a lot has changed. Beautiful coin. Thanks for everything. Mike

That is lovely. Is this being sold by the Royal Hawaiian Mint? I would guess that's a private minting firm.
