One of the best things about being an ANA member is the opportunity to share knowledge with each other. There is not a day that goes by that I do not learn something new and do not find a new collecting niche that piques my interest.

Newfoundland to Hawaii? I guess so.

So, I was at my local coin shop about two months ago, waiting to make a purchase when I noticed the pictured book, Hawaiian Money: Standard Catalog, 2nd Edition, sitting on the book rack. I leafed through it briefly but put it back, made my purchase and left the shop. About a week later, after thinking about the book quite incessantly, I went back to the coin shop, plunked down 25 bucks and walked away with my treasure. It sat on the bookshelf for a few weeks until I took it out and started reading it about two weeks ago. Bottom line, this is a fascinating book about all manner of Hawaiian money from the actual minted Cent through Dollar, to the patterns, to the medals, transportation tokens, plantation tokens, store tokens, and lots of other stuff too numerous to mention. A fun addition to your library whether you have a real interest or not.
