Coin Story

The Chapel Bridge, the oldest covered wooden bridge, is the most famous sight of the city Lucerne in Switzerland. It served as a defence and was built in 1365. After completion, the bridge which is now over 204 m long, was 75 m longer. It was shortened by that length when the river bank was filled in in 1835. The bridge is unique because of its 111 triangular pictures, of which nearly 80 were destroyed in the firestorm in April 1993. Europe’s second longest covered wooden bridge was immediately reconstructed and has been open to pedestrian traffic again since 1994.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Chapel Bridge in Lucerne. The bridge is finely engraved into the background of the coin. The tower, as well as the water, 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 Chapel Bridge coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
