Coin Story

The Brandenburg Gate was erected between 1788 and 1791 and is a popular sightseeing destination. Throughout its history, the gate was repeatedly in the focus of political events. The quadriga, a chariot drawn by four horses driven by the goddess of victory, which is attached to the gate, was stolen by Napoleon as part of the plundering of cultural art in 1806. Only eight years later, after the victory of the Wars of Liberation, it was brought back to Berlin. During the Cold War the Brandenburg Gate was in the middle of the exclusion zone of the Berlin Wall. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Berlin’s landmark is a symbol of the reunification of today’s Germany.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. The Gate 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 Brandenburg Gate coin comes encapsuled with a Certificate of Authenticity.
