Coin Story

Topaz of any type is a good jewelry stone and it is historically one of the most important gemstones. The topaz comes in many colors, including clear, brown, yellow, orange, red, pink and blue. The fine golden-yellow variety, known as Imperial Topaz, is relatively scarce. Topaz colors are rarely vivid. The most common color is yellow with a red tint; the most valuable is pink to reddish. The coloring agents are iron and chromium. The name topaz is most probably derived from an island in the Red Sea, "Topazos", today called Zabargad, the ancient source of peridot. In former times all golden-brown and sometimes also green gemstones were called topaz, which caused sufficient confusion such that today real topaz is referred to as precious topaz. The topaz is the birthstone for those who are born in the month of November.

Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse portrays workers in the mines, from which the precious stones are extracted. Embedded into the coin is a real Topaz. The coin has gone through a special minting process to give it an "antiqued" appearance.

Obverse Design

The coin, which is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Republic of Palau, portrays the Palau Coat of Arms.

Packaging

The Treasures of the World - Topaz silver coin comes encapsulated in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
