Coin Story

Phantom? An illusion? – Sometimes we hardly believe our own eyes. Our eyes are in fact able to take in an image as quick as lightning. However, sometimes this first impression is very confusing. We then have to look twice and strain our eyes more. We have to first mentally digest what we saw on the spur of the moment. Only on the second glance do we recognise that an image consists of different layers and details. The Swiss artist Sandro del Prete (* 1931) is a master craftsman in the optical illusion drawing style which he calls „Illusorism“. One of his new riddle images is this beautiful autumn scene. Look closely: In the middle of withered leaves a sleeping woman is already dreaming of the next spring… Do you see her?

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a spectacular illusion. You will either see autumn leaves, or a sleeping woman is already dreaming of the next spring (dependant on your view and perception). The leaves are gilded with 18kt. - Rose Gold.

Obverse Design

The front of the coin depicts the South Sea Island of Palau’s coat of arms. 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.


The Illusions - Autumn Leaves coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
