Description

The Hawaiian Sesquicentennial Half Dollar was released in 1928 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the islands.

The obverse design is based on sketches submitted by Juliette May Fraser and includes a portrait of Capt. James Cook.

The reverse features a portrait of a native chief with robe and spear. He stands on the summit of a hill and extends his hand in welcome. Behind him are a coconut tree and a Hawaiian village of grass huts in the distance along the Waikiki Beach at the foot of Diamond Hill.
