2008 Hawaii State Quarter Release Date: November 3

Hawaii State QuarterThe final coin of the popular 50 State Quarters Program will be released in less than one week! It’s the Hawaii State Quarter scheduled for release on November 3, 2008.

This latest release will cap off the 10 year series which is credited with bringing a new influx of coin collectors to the hobby. It will also have a lasting impression on the way that American think about coins and states.

The design for the Hawaii Quarter features a famous figure from Hawaiian history known as King Kamehameha I. In the early 1800’s he unified the governance of the various islands which make up Hawaii. He was able to navigate through modern changes while still preserving traditional ways of island life. The coin shows a statue of the ruler with a hand outstretched to the eight main Hawaiian Islands.

An inscription is included, “UA MAU KE EA O KA ‘AINA I KA PONO.” This translates to “The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.”

Look for the final coin of your State Quarter collection soon!
