Coin Story

The St. Basil’s Cathedral is one of the most beautiful landmarks in Moscow. The church was built in the 16th century by order of the tsar of that time, Ivan IV. At first she was white and the domes were coated with leaf gold. In the 17th century the gold domes were replaced by today’s colourfully decorated ones. The white exterior facade also gave way to today’s red and white play of colours. In 1936 the cathedral was supposed to be knocked down as it was in the way during parades on the Red Square. Fortunately this was prevented.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the famous St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow. It is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The roof of the cathedral 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 St. Basil's Cathedral coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
