Coin Story

Every year, Coin Invest Trust surprises collectors with a unique Christmas coin. Special feature in 2014: the coin is shaped like a Christmas tree.

Once again, Coin Invest Trust proves that coins can have many shapes. A tree-shaped coin can be just as aesthetically pleasing as a round one, given that the design is as convincingly simple and minimalistic as that of this Christmas coin. In Germany and Austria, the Christmas tree truly embodies Christmas. Under the tree is where you
gather the family on Christmas Eve, where you sing together, exchange presents and eat Christmas cookies. For centuries, this image has crucially shaped our idea of Christmas. The origins of the Christmas tree tradition, however, remain unclear. Already in pre-Christian times, houses were decorated with evergreen branches or trees to symbolise the return of spring. In the Middle Ages, this tradition was taken up by the Christian church. From then on, trees were put up in sacred spaces and at home. Clear evidence supports the existence of this tradition only from the 16th century onwards.

Reverse Design

The coin is executed in Christmas tree shape and with matt finish on both surfaces. The circular indentations on the reverse are suggestive of tree decorations.

Obverse Design

The coin’s obverse shows the coat of arms of Palau, the name of the issuing authority, Republic of Palau, above, and the nominal value, 1 $, below.

Packaging

The Golden Christmas Tree gold coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
