I didn't really buy this token, but I thought it would be interesting as I recently found it.

I noticed an odd coin on the ground along with some other small change, so I picked it up. I found a quarter, two dimes, and a cent. I also found a token that said "PITTSBURGH RAILWAY CO. 1922 on the obverse, and on the reverse GOOD FOR ONE FARE. A triangle shaped opening was in the middle. I have found numerous examples like these for sale, so I'm pretty sure it's not very rare. But still an interesting find.
Will post pictures tomorrow.

1984 25th Anniversary Hawaii Admission Day Dala
( I have been chasing one of these for over half a year, the toning on this one warmed up to me. )

Mintage: 5500 including sets - Diameter 39mm - Number and quality on the edge 1 ounce .999 Fine Proof Silver Round.
OBVERSE: Portrait, LILIUOKALANI HAWAII
The beautiful Queen Liliuokalani obverse features the famous Huth Medal design of 1891.
REVERSE: ADMISSION DAY DALA, HAWAIIAN STATEHOOD, SILVER JUBILEE, AUGUST 12 1959 - 1984 with crest and ribbon.

These were packaged in a tamper proof capsule, a gift box with Royal Hawaiian Silver printed outer box and the original Certificate of Authenticity.

With the overwhelming success of the sold-out Statehood Issue within the first six months of 1984, the Mint created the Admission Day Dala to satisfy collector demand and celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Hawaii’s Statehood.

The same obverse from the Statehood Dala with Queen Liliuokalani graces the Admission Day Dala. It was the Queen of Hawaii and her loyal Hawaiian citizens who bravely fought against fate to maintain the Kingdom of Hawaii. The reverse design commemorates the very day, August 21, 1959, that President Eisenhower signed the Act of Congress admitting Hawaii as the 50th State in the Union.

The Liliuokalani reign (1891 - 1893) was short lived and ended with the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii by American forces.
When imprisoned in Iolani Palace, the Queen called out to her fellow Christians of her tragic fate.
Queen Liliuokalani is still loved by her people who continue to mourn the loss of their Queen and the Kingdom of Hawaii.
Liliuokalani, the sister of King Kalakaua, took the oath of office and was proclaimed queen on Jan. 29, 1891, after the death of her brother. She was a brilliant woman, talented and dignified. Queen Liliuokalani's reign of less than two years was filled with trouble and after much despair, ended in failure when on July 4, 1894 the Republic of Hawaii was proclaimed.
Liliuokalani was an author in English and Hawaiian and was the most accomplished musician and composer in her family.
She composed over 600 songs, some of Hawaii's most inspiring musical works, among which is one of the most beautiful, yet saddest of all Hawaiian songs, Aloha Oe: Farewell to Thee.
There are many versions of Aloha Oe on YouTube, I couldn't pick any particular one to share.
My wife and I vacationed on the Island of Maui and of course this was performed during an awesome luau. Nothing beats a performance like that. Goosebumps.

Even though it seems to have been written as a farewell song between two lovers, it is more poetically thought of as being written by the Queen as a lasting farewell to her reign and the end of the Kingdom of Hawaii as a sovereign and independent country.
