Coin Story

The pearl is a unique natural product which cultivates itself under still unfamiliar circumstances. Perhaps this is the reason why for a long time pearls were rumoured to have curative powers. As from the 8th century they were used as a remedy. In Europe freshwater pearls were used to produce pearl milk.
The „Aqua perlata“ is a medicinal solution of powdered pearls, vinegar or lemon juice, sugar and herbs which was used in the middle Ages as a drink to relieve insanity, heart disease and even lovesickness. It was even believed that this wonder water was able to awake the dead again. Up until the middle of the 19th century the pearls took up a firm place in the textbooks of pharmaceutics.
Although today we do not believe in the pearls curative effect anymore the pearls enchant us anyway. Let this fascination infect you too!

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts a shell holding a pearl. The shell offsets itself against the silver proof background, due to the applied color. In the center of the shell you will find a blue coloured pearl.

Obverse Design

The front of the coin depicts the South Sea Island of Palau’s coat of arms – a sea god with a mermaid and a boat typical of Oceania. 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.

Packaging

The Marine Life Protection - Treasures of the Sea Blue Pearl coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
