Coin Story

Both of the two approximately 18 meter high Colossi of Memnon are located in the Egyptian Nile valley close to the city of Luxor. They were made of sandstone in the 14th century B.C. and each weighs over 1000 tons.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Colossi of Menmon. The coloss is finely engraved into the background of the coin. Parts of it offset themselves against the silver proof background, due to the applied color. The image is very detailed and beautifully designed.

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 World of Wonders - Colossi of Menmon coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
