Coin Story

It is a white marble mausoleum, generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned it for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and it was constructed between 1632 and 1648.
The origin of the historical idea of the “Seven Wonders of the World” dates back to Herodotus (484–425 BC) who made a list which included the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. Only the Great Pyramid of Giza is still standing. The other six were destroyed by an earthquake, fire or other reasons. In 2001, the “New 7 Wonders Foundation” carried out a voting for new wonders. “Everybody can decide and vote for what the New Seven Wonders should be and not only some governments or institutions", so the initiator Bernhard Weber. On 07.07.2007, out of 200 candidates selected by over 100 million, the results were announced at a ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal as the “New Seven Wonders of the World”

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the The Taj Mahal. The reflection of the Taj Mahal is finely engraved into the background of the coin, while the building 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 New 7 World Wonders - Taj Mahal coin comes encapsulated with a Certificate of Authenticity.
