Coin Story

The baroque Palace of Versailles which is located in a suburb of Paris has belonged to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1979 and is considered one of the highlights of european castle architecture.

Originally, the palace was only designed for King Louis XIII as a hunting residence. Not until 1661 was it reconstructed and enlarged in several stages by King Louis XIV, the famous “Roi Soleil“. Up until the outbreak of the French Revolution the Palace of Versailles was the official residence of the royal family. Therefore it was the cultural and political centre in France during the 17th century. It also accommodated a court of several thousand people.

Today the castle is one of the biggest tourist attractions in France and is visited by several million visitors annually.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Palace of Versailles in Paris. The palace 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 Palace of Versailles coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
