Coin Story

Haliotis tuberculata or the green ormer is a maritime snail species which is mainly found in the Mediterranean but also in the Eastern Atlantic. This sea dweller is often mistaken for a mussel because of its shape as well as its ability to create pearls just like a mussel does. The muscular foot with which the animal clings onto the ground is considered a delicacy in many countries. For this reason the marine snail is an endangered species and regionally protected in various ways.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the "Rainbow of the Sea". The snail offsets itself against the silver proof background, due to the applied color. In the center of the snail you will find an anthracite coloured pearl.

Obverse Design

The obverse 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 Marine Life Protection - Rainbow of the Sea coin comes encapsuled with a wodden presentation case and a Certificate of Authenticity.
