This paper focuses on a specially constructed matrix whose entries are harmonic Fibonacci numbers and considers its Hadamard exponential matrix. A lot of admiring algebraic properties are presented for both of them. Some of them are determinant, inverse in usual and in the Hadamard sense, permanents, some norms, etc. Additionally, a MATLAB-R2016a code is given to facilitate the calculations and to further enrich the content.
