Silver Ounce 2018 Silver Fortune, Coin from Palau
CoinSilver Ounce 2018 Silver Fortune

The Republic of Palau is an island country in the western Pacific, in free association with the United States. In one way or another, the country has been under US administration since it was established, and has never had its own separate currency - it has always used the US Dollar. However, Palau allows some foreign mints to issue coins under its authority; these are denominated in US Dollars but are only legal tender in Palau, so can in a way be considered to be in "Palau Dollars", even though such a currency does not officially exist.

The coins are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the internationally popular one troy ounce of silver.

This coin is the first release in the Silver Charms collection featuring specially shaped coins, and has the shape of a four-leaf clover.

The Mint says about it:
Silver Fortune is the result of uniting CIT’s expertise and long tradition with special shape coins, lately struck in dramatic smartminting relief, with one of CIT’s most popular themes dating back to 2010 - the four-leaf clover. The classic Ounce of Luck series was issued for the ANA show with an updated design and is still a sought after gift and staple in many a collection. The Silver Fortune, however, is undoubtedly the new flagship clover coin thanks to its elaborate design and production. Each of the 2500 one-ounce coins is presented in an exclusive glossy white collector’s box.

The obverse of the coin features the unofficial "Emblem of Palau" used on much of the country's coinage. It has an ornate shield at centre, on which is depicted the sea god Neptune, crowned and seated on a round stone and holding a trident in his left hand; on the right, a bare breasted mermaid; on the left, a treasure chest. The ground is a beach, featuring waves and a starfish. Above Neptune, a star. Below the waves, the inscription RAINBOW'S END. Above the shield is a native rowing in a single-outrigger canoe.

Around above, surrounded by three stars on the left and three stars on the right, the name of the country: *** REPUBLIC OF PALAU ***.

Below, the face value $5 (five dollars).

At the base of the stem, the date of issue 2018.
