Coin Story

The Temple of Heaven is a 1’200 m long temple complex in Beijing. It is surrounded by big walls. The two most important buildings are the Imperial Vault of Heaven in the southern and the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the northern part of the grounds. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests (illustrated on the coin) was constructed by Emperor Yongle in 1420. The Temple of Heaven, a UNESCO World Heritage since 1998, is considered a landmark of Beijing and is a big tourist attraction.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Hall of Prayer in the Temple of Heaven complex. The temple is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The hall of prayer offsets itself 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 Temple of Heaven coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
