Coin Story

The name Big Ben does not really refer to the famous clock tower, but actually only to the heaviest of the five bells in the tower which is 13,5 tons. Naturally local people see this differently. The clock tower with its 96 metres is one of the best-known sights of the city which lies on the Thames. Since 2012, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, it has been called Elizabeth Tower. Twenty-four hours a day, four engineers ensure that everything in the tower functions properly. Big Ben’s chime, which is called the Voice of Britain, is broadcasted on BBC radio hourly.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Big Ben in London. The tower is finely engraved into the background of the coin. Parts of it 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 World of Wonders Big Ben coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
