CoinSilver Two Ounces 2018 Flowers - Daisy and Ladybug

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 large two troy ounces (2oz) of silver format.

The Daisy and Ladybug coin is the second issue in the coloured Flowers series.

The Mint says about it:
An ultra high relief (smartminted) daisy with a ladybug and wet drop effect makes this a unique piece of art; minted on a piedfort 2oz with the latest technology giving it a natural look!

Bellis may come from bellus, Latin for pretty, and perennis is Latin for everlasting. The name daisy is considered a corruption of day’s eye, because the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning. Chaucer called it eye of the day. In Medieval times, Bellis perennis or the English Daisy was commonly known as Mary’s Rose. It is also known as bone flower. The English Daisy is also considered to be a flower of children and innocence.

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 ***.
