Hawaii joined the Union in 1959 as the 50th and final state, just one decade after Alaska joined. With the addition of Hawaii, the United States added a Pacific outpost for its navy, and some of the most impressive natural wonders known to man. The volcanoes of Kilauea and Mauna Loa are among the most famous in the world, and draw countless visitors to the state each year.
The state may have joined the Union after Alaska, but the 2012 5 oz Hawaii Volcanoes ATB Silver Coin appeared before the 49th state in the America the Beautiful coin series. Released in 2012 just ahead of Alaska, the Hawaii coin was the fourth released in the 2012 production year.
On the reverse is the image of Kilauea as it blows its top. The volcano is among the most active in the world, with visitors flocking to Hawaii for the opportunity to see it erupt. The obverse side of the coin features President George Washington’s iconic 18th century bust.
Each coin available to you today is in Mint State 69 condition. Coins of this grade are considered near perfect, with no more than two blemishes and their full, original luster. These particular coins, although bullion versions, have a deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish.
