Coin Story

At about 443 metres in height, the Empire State Building in New York was the highest building worldwide up until 1972.

Since the tragic chain of events on September 11th 2001 and up until the construction of the One World Trade Centre it was once again the highest building in the Big Apple. At a record-breaking pace, the skyscraper in Art Deco construction style was practically built over night.

The construction work started in January 1930 and the steel giant was already opened by the then US-President Herbert Hoover on May 1st 1931. Approximately 60’000 tons of steel were used.

Nowadays, on special occasions, the top of the Empire State Building is specially lit up. For example, on St. Patrick’s Day it shines green, on Halloween orange and on US-holidays it shines red-white and blue.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Empire State Building in New York. The building is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The surroundings 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 Empire State Building coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
