HAWAII STATE QUARTER DESIGN SELECTED

An April 24th article in the Honolulu Advertiser proclaims 'It's 
official.

"'A 25-cent piece featuring the mighty profile of King Kamehameha, 
the eight main islands, our state motto (Ua mau ke ea o ka 'aina e ka 
pono), admission year and  in case anyone doesn't get it  the word 
'Hawaii' will be jingling in pockets and purses across the U.S.

"'Gov. Linda Lingle yesterday announced formal approval of the Hawai'i 
commemorative quarter, the last of 50 such quarters to be authorized 
and issued by the U.S. Mint.

[Bad choice, in my opinion. At least they didn't choose the surfer or 
Hula dancer, but the chosen design combining the statue of King Kamehameha 
and the outline of the state looks for all the world like someone tossing 
out scraps of trash. The "Diamond Head" design would have been much 
better. -Editor]
