I searched but couldn't find if the Hawaiian quarter will be the first piece of United States money featuring a king. (There is the king salmon on the Washington quarter, but I was thinking of royalty not yummy fish.)




Or another language besides English!

Just remembered E pluribus unum, Latin for "Out of Many, One," (Thanks Wikipedia) was used on many coins.

Aloha,

If you look at the Honolulu Star Bulletin today, there is an article regarding the Hawaii state quarter. (www.starbulletin.com)

Ha, forgot about that one. Probably because their Hula girl is a generic nude (no lei or palm frond skirt) and their Tiki looks like Richard Nixon.

I know these quarters have been circulating since 2008, but I have yet to actually see one. I know they were minted in both Denver and Philadelphia but what did they do, only distribute them in Hawaii?

Anybody here on the mainland have one of these yet?

I have a couple. But I have to admit I got them when I was back home last month. And I won't be "circulating" them here!

I got one today in some change, so the banks are now circulating them. If you ask at your bank, you could get one/some that haven't been handled much.

The reverse of Hawaii’s quarter features Hawaiian monarch King Kamehameha I stretching his hand toward the eight major Hawaiian Islands. Inscriptions are the state motto "UA MAU KE EA O KA ‘ĀINA I KA PONO," ("The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness"), "Hawaii" and "1959."

King Kamehameha I is a revered figure in Hawaiian history. He unified the governance of the Hawaiian Islands into one kingdom in the early 1800s and navigated changes in Hawaii, while maintaining the native practices and traditional ways of island life. His "Law of the Splintered Paddle" guaranteed the protection of citizens from harm during war and became a landmark in humanitarian law. He is honored with a statue in the U.S. Capitol’s National Statuary Hall.
