About 1928 Hawaiian Silver Commemoratives

One of the most popular commemorative coins in its time and today is the 1928 Hawaiian half dollar, a coin honoring the 150th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s landing in the Hawaiian islands in 1778. The coin, designed by Juliette May Fraser and Chester Beach, depicts Captain Cook on the obverse and on the reverse a picturesque island panorama with a native Hawaiian welcomingly gesturing toward the viewer.

The coin saw a relatively small mintage of around 10,000 pieces and they were widely distributed by the Bank of Hawaii for $2 apiece – the highest issue price for a commemorative half dollar at that time. Most examples are well struck and lustrous, though exhibit have heavy toning.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors.
