Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands has long been popular with tourists because of its gorgeous scenery, beautiful tropical beaches and numerous cultural activities. Each year, the Maui Chamber of Commerce issues a trade dollar that is good in trade at participating merchants throughout the island during the year that it is issued. Most of the coins are kept as souvenirs rather being turned in for redemption at the end of the year, which helps raise funds for educational projects on the island. Over the years the series has become increasing popular with collectors.
For 2013, the subject shown on the reverse is the Swordfish leaping above the waves with a sunrise in the background. The ferocious migratory Swordfish is caught off the island of Oahu between April and July and is caught by commercial vessels in waters far north of Hawaii. Ancient Hawaiian's feared this fish because in the process of being landed they would often strike and pierce canoes. Though Swordfish and Marlin are similar in look and habitat, Swordfish tends to have a richer flavor, higher oil content, and a smoother texture that is preferred and brings a premium price for fish in the 100 - 300 pound range. The majority of current Hawaiian swordfish marketed range between 80 and 300 pounds though they can get as large as 600 pounds.
This Maui Trade Dollar makes a great collectible gift for yourself or someone you know.
