Coin Story

The Eiffel Tower was erected between 1887 and 1889. The occasion was the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution and the World exhibition in Paris in 1889 which was held under the same motto. This tower was named after its erector, Gustave Eiffel, although he himself was not the architect. The idea for this landmark came from a Swiss, Maurice Koechlin, who also drew up the first drafts. A few technical specifications: height over 320m, weight 10.000t, building area of 125m x 125m. Up until 1930 it was the highest structure worldwide. Today the Eiffel Tower is used as a television tower, restaurant and viewing platform. This marvel which is considered the symbol of France is visited by more than six million tourists yearly.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the Eiffel Tower. It is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The surroundings offset themselves from the 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 Eiffel Tower coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
