Coin Story

The Alhambra is an UNESCO World Heritage since 1984, located in Andalusia, Spain and one of the most beautiful buildings created in the Moorish style. The history of this citadel began in the year 1238 when the Nasrids ruler of that time, Muhammad I. ibn Yusuf ibn Nasr named Al-Ahmar, transferred his residence to Granada. The emirate was known for its technical and cultural progress. In 1492 the Nasrids era came to an end and the Catholic King of Spain took over the reign which is still so to this day.

Reverse Design

The reverse features the Alhambra. The buliding is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The Roofs, as well as the fountain, 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 Alhambra coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
