500,000 of these Hawaiian dollars were produced in 1883. After the overthrow of Liliuokalani and the subsequent annexation of Hawaii by the United States, the Hawaiian coins were largely withdrawn from circulation and melted; the silver dollar, owing to its silver value, was most affected by this policy: 453,622 were melted. This left the dollar with a net distribution of just 46,348 business strikes along with a small number of proofs.
