    Rare Hawaii $5 Gold Certificate

    $5 Republic of Hawaii Gold Certificate 1895 (1899) Pick 6b PMG Extremely Fine 40. Appropriately, a detailed vignette of Iolani Palace is found on this rare Hawaiian $5 Gold Certificate. This was the Royal Palace and later the State House. This building was built in 1882 and it is categorized as the only example of American Florentine architecture anywhere in the world. This is a cancelled unissued note with dark inks and four wide margins and serial number 3998-B. It has been roulette cancelled "PAID" and the label informs us of an internal tear that is a little to the left of the bull vignette. This is where small punch cancels have joined together. The Republic of Hawaii was founded on July 4, 1894 with Sanford Dole as president. In 1896 United States President William McKinley signed the Newlands Resolution which provided for the official annexation of Hawaii and in 1898 the islands became a United States territory.
