Coin Story

The Terracotta Army is part of a mausoleum which was built in 210 BC for Qín Shĭhuángdì, the Emperor at that time. Since 1987 the army has been listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.The army is composed of 7278 soldiers who are all life-size and have been lovingly replicated in great detail. The various military ranks are recognisable due to varying uniforms and each soldier has individual facial features. Also the details in equipment vary from figure to figure. Already during construction the burnt clay was treated with a chromium salt solution in order to preserve it – and mind you, this was more than 2000 years ago.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Terracotta Army. The army 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 Terracotta Army coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
