Coin Story

The building history of this unique masterpiece began in the 13th century. After several delays the cathedral was completed in the year 1434 when the dome, which is an architectural masterpiece, was finished. Thereafter, further work, such as painting the dome interior, was accomplished. Even today the dimensions are very impressive. With over 160 m in length, a façade 50 m high and the domes diameter of over 45 m, the cathedral is the landmark of Florence to this day.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Florence Cathedral. The cathedral 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.
