Coin Story

At 4274 m the Finsteraarhorn is the highest mountain in the Bernese Alps and in Central Switzerland. Its distinctive shark fin-like shape, its dominance and prominence make it one of the most beautiful mountains in Switzerland and of the entire Alps. The Finsteraarhorn is a part of the Aar massive and is geologically composed of amphibolite. It is very remote and can only be ascended in a two- or three-day tour. The ascent usually starts on the Grimsel Pass or Jungfraujoch and from there leads via the Finsteraarhorn hut (3048 m) up to the summit. Along with the two alpine guides, Jakob Leuthold and Johann Währen, the Swiss glaciologist Franz Joseph Hugi attempted the ascent of the Finsteraarhorn on August 10th, 1829. Due to a foot injury Hugi had to stay put on the North-east ridge on the “Hugisattel“, which is named after him, while both of his guides succeeded in the first ascent of this challenging summit.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures the Finsteraarhorn. The mountain is finely engraved into the silver proof coin. In the bottom right corner of the coin you will find the signature flora of the region.

Obverse Design

The front of the coin depicts the South Sea Island of Palau’s coat of arms. The name of the issuing nation ‘REPUBLIC OF PALAU’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘5 $’ is indicated in the exergue.
