Coin Story

Surfing has been known for over 4000 years. While travelling through the South Seas Polynesians spread this sport. For the natives of Hawaii surfing is not only a sport, it is a cultural and spiritual feature in society. The Hawaiian word for surfing is „Nalu“ and means „glide to the shore on a wave“or “to find oneself”.
This new scent coin shows a surfer who has just ridden in a tube - everyone’s dream that carries out this sport. It is an indescribable adrenalin boost which only the best are able to experience. With waves of over 10 meters in height only the most courage’s, or should one say craziest, plunge themselves into this mass of water.
The phrase „onolisicious“ (oh-noh-Lih-shee-uhs) is a term which is used in the surfer slang and comes from the Hawaiian word „ono“ (delightful, groovy) and the English word delicious. It means as much as really delicious, really good, or really great.

Rub the wave then you can literally smell the danger.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts a surfer riding a huge wave. The finely engraved surfer offsets itself against the coloured background. Rub the wave then you can literally smell the danger.

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 Scent of Paradise - Sea Breeze coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
