MAUI TRADE DOLLAR
WHALE HULA DANCER
2008 Copper-Nickel Coin Uncirculated
This Maui Trade Dollar Whale Hula Dancer 2008 Coin is different than the previous issues in these two important ways:
1- It is the first Maui Trade Dollar that features a human, rather than just an animal in the design. The coin pictures a hula dancer. Two birds fly overhead and a whale leaps from the ocean in the background.
2- Due to the falling value of the dollar, the face value of the Maui Trade Dollar became Two Dollars, rather than One Dollar as were previous issues.
For 2008, a Whale and a Hula Dancer are the subjects shown on the front. The front reads “MAUI, NO KA OI, 2008.”
Maui Trade Dollar Whale Hula Dancer 2008 Coin Background:
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 of issue. Purchasers kept most of the coins as souvenirs rather than turning them in for redemption at the end of the year. This helped raise funds for educational projects on the island. Over the years the series became increasing popular with collectors.
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 it is a favorite travel destination.
