mysql> SELECT ord(convert('א' using ucs2));
| ord(convert('א' using ucs2))  |
|                          1488 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

To explain:
* ucs2 is the CHARACTER SET that matches Unicode.
* CONVERT() changes Aleph from whatever CHARACTER SET you are in (utf8, in my case) to what it says (ucs2).
* ORD() converts one _character_ (not one _byte_) to decimal.
* If you want HEX, then enclose that in HEX().

(P is 80, not 77 in most encodings.)
