Maui, known as the Valley Isle, is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Its gorgeous scenery, beautiful tropical beaches and numerous cultural activities, has long made it a popular destination with tourists. Each year, the Maui Chamber of Commerce issues a trade dollar. The 39mm copper-nickel token is good for one dollar at participating merchants throughout the island during the year it is issued. Most of the dollars are kept by tourists as souvenirs rather than being redeemed, which raises funds for educational projects on the island.
The attractive 2006 issue was designed by an eight-year-old child named Sarah Olsen. The design features a Hump back whale, puffer fish and coral. It is an attractive coin from this popular tropical paradise.
Hawaii is the primary breeding ground for the North Pacific Humpback Whale. Most Humpbacks that winter in Hawaii migrate to Southeastern Alaska to feed for the summertime. Humpbacks can attain bursts of speed up to 20 miles per hour! They average 3 to 6 mph when swimming. Their migration pattern covers 3000 to 3500 miles. Humpbacks were named by early whalers due to the appearance of their arching backs while diving along with their prominent dorsal fins.
This Hawaii Maui Trade Dollar makes a great collectible gift for yourself or someone you know.
