Coin Story

The St Patrick’s Cathedral is in Dublin and with a length of over 90 meters is the biggest church in Ireland. Originally it was a small chapel which was situated next to a spring. Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, supposedly carried out baptisms in the 5th century at this spring. Today’s cathedral was called „Peoples Church“ for a long time by the Irish and was built from 1191 until 1270. From 1713 up until 1745 the author of „Gulliver’s Travels“, Jonathan Swift, was the dean of this Irish Cathedral and after his death he found his eternal rest there. Today the church is used for various ceremonial occasions.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin. The cathedral 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 St. Patrick's Cathedral coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
