People who visit Hawaii can save a piece of it in their pocket by collecting a commemorative quarter. Each coin tells a state’s history and geography. Stamped into the metal is the year Hawaii was admitted into the Union. In 1958 Hawaii made history by becoming the 50th state. Another very important feature melted on the quarter is a picture of King Kamehameha. He was an important ruler in Hawaiian history encouraging all people to keep their traditions. On the coin, King Kamehameha has his arms outstretched toward the 8 islands that make up the state of Hawaii. The nickname is engraved into the coin as well. This state is known as the “Aloha” state. Aloha means hello and goodbye. Remember no trip is complete without a souvenir so collect your commemorative quarter today!
