HAWAIIAN LIBERTY DOLLAR LAUNCHED

Also in Bernard von NotHaus' November 2006 newsletter is announcement
of a new version the Liberty Dollar.  He writes: "So what do I do in
my spare time? Recently when I had a couple of days, I went to Hawaii
for the weekend and launched a Hawaiian version of the Liberty Dollar.

Announcing the new 2007 Hawaii Dala featuring King Kamehameha on the
obverse with a Face Value of $20 so if you are inclined, you can
actually use it as voluntary kala because one Hawaiian Dala is equal
to one US dollar. Check out the photos:

What is to come? A lot! The six historic mega designs I did for the
30th anniversary for the old Royal Hawaiian Mint in 2004 will be issued
in three sizes for a total of 18 issues. One design per size per month.
The six designs are: Kamehameha, Liliuokalani, Kalakaua, Kaiulani,
Warrior, and Discovers. The three sizes at the current $20 Silver Base
will be: one ounce $20 Hawaii Dala, a half ounce $10 Hapalua Dala, and
a quarter ounce $5 Hapaha Dala. All in .999 fine silver.

In addition to each of these 18 silver Dala issues, a minimum of 100
of each issue will be hallmarked with a micro hand stamp with the outline
of the Hawaiian Island to denote First Day of Issue. And an additional
minimum of 100 will also be hand numbered 001 to 100 with the FDI
hallmark. Both of these Limited Issues will be available at a premium
to Face Value and market priced."

proof examples.  -Editor]
