MAUI TRADE DOLLAR
2006 Copper-Nickel Coin Uncirculated
Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands has long been popular with tourists because of its gorgeous scenery, beautiful tropical beaches and numerous cultural activities. Each year, the Maui Chamber of Commerce issued a trade dollar that is good in trade at participating merchants throughout the island during the year that it is issued. Most of the coins were kept as souvenirs rather being turned in for redemption at the end of the year, which helped raise funds for educational projects on the island. Over the years the series became increasing popular with collectors.
For 2006, the subject shown on the front is a Humpback Whale, Puffer Fish and Coral. The front reads “MAUI, NO KA OI, 2006”.
This attractive 2006 issue was designed by an eight-year-old child named Sarah Olsen.
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.
