Since 1992, the Island of Maui in the US State of Hawaii has issued 'trade dollars' for tourists. These tokens are eligible to be exchanged for face value at participating merchants during its year of issue. Many tourists see these as unique souvenirs instead, and do not redeem them. The money raised by them helps fund education on the island. With a different design each year, collectors have grown increasingly fond of these tokens!
The 1993 obverse depicts a whale and its calf. The text reads “MAUI, NO KA OI, 1993”. The reverse says “One Maui Trade Dollar, The Valley Isle, Good for one dollar in trade at participating merchants during 1993”. Struck in a copper-nickel alloy, these have a mintage of just 100,000! As an uncirculated coin, they received a great MS67 grade by ANACS. Only 128 exist in this grade, with just 25 in any grades higher!
