Coin Story

In 1742, Anders Celsius defined the temperature scale degree-centigrade which was later named after him. He fixed the boiling point of water at 0 degree and the freezing point at 100 degree. These fix-points were switched later.
• The Swedish physician, mathematician and astronomer was interested in mathematic since childhood.
• His father Nils was a professor of astronomy. And even his grandfathers were scholars. Magnus Celsius was a mathematician und Anders Spole was an astronomer.
• Celsius died at the age of only 42 in the middle of his work and only two years after fixing his temperature scale because of tuberculosis.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a Thermometer (in Celsius), which is actually working. The scale ranges from 14 degrees up to 32 degrees Celsius. You will also find the image of Anders Celsius, as well as a Thermometer, on the centrepiece of the coin.

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.

Packaging

The Anders Celsius coin comes in a specially designed box (celebrating 270 years of Anders Celsius) with a Certificate of Authenticity.
