Medal: US Hawaii Kauai Dollar
Medal: US Hawaii Kauai Dollar

These, of course, are not real dollars. They are medallions or tokens issued by Kauai as souvenirs. Some are dated, some are not. If you can find one made of silver, then it is worth its weight in silver. Most are made of non-precious metal and sell retail around the $8 US dollar mark. A novelty dealer may buy a used one from you for $2 and sell it for $5.

I have 2 different coins. One says 'HAWAII DOLLAR' & the other says 'HILO DOLLAR'. Is there a set that they belong to? Are there coins from each of the 8 islands or Hawaii? - C. Merz
Hilo is a town on the Big Island. There are many, many souvenir 'dollars' produced for tourists, but I do not know of a coordinated set as you hypothesize. It would be a good tourist gimic ... 'collect all coins from all islands.' Modern tourist coins are worth small amounts. - CoinQuest (Paul)
