THE HONOLULU MINT AND THE HAWAII MEDAL OF HONOR

Another article published this week described the design
of the Hawaii Medal of Honor and mentioned the designer
and manufacturer:

"The medal features the state coat of arms and the Maltese Cross,
which depicts four axes of the globe to represent Hawaii as the
crossroads of the Pacific. The medals cost about $100 each and
are being made by the Honolulu Mint."

The Honolulu Mint's web site gives this background:
"Steven Lee, an award winning jewelry designer, founded the
Honolulu Mint in 1985. Lee applied his expertise and artistry
to first produce a line of coin and ingot jewelry featuring
Hawaiian Royalty. Steven Lee was trained at the US government
San Francisco Mint where the nations' proof-quality commemorative
coins are minted. There he studied press design and minting
operations. An avid collector of historical and numismatic
collectibles, Lee has also engineered and built a number of
minting presses."
