    Iolani Palace on Rare $5 Gold Certificate

    Republic of Hawaii $5 Gold Certificate 1895 Pick 6p Face and Back Proofs. Appropriately, a detailed vignette of Iolani Palace is found on this Hawaiian note. 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. The delightful $5 face and back Gold Certificate proofs in this lot feature excellent yellow and black inks. This proof also has a red serial number of "00000." The back proof does reveal some mucilage. A mere six complete proof notes for this design are known. Crisp Uncirculated, 4 POC. (Total: 2 notes)
