    The silver collectible 5-dollar coin of Palau was launched in 2009 to commemorate the bicentenary of Braille’s birthday. Louis Braille is an inventor of a reading system for the blind people, which is usually called by the same name. The Braille system made the education much more available for the blind, the system is widely used nowadays all across the world. Being blind by himself, Louis Braille designed the specific alphabet for blind at the age of fifteen. He then kept on improving his system and spread it even on musical notation. The coin bears the portrait of Louis Braille on its reverse and the phrase in French meaning “One sees clearly only with the heart”. The name of the inventor is struck along the upper rim of the coin in dotted Braille-imitating manner. The years of Braille’s life are indicated beside it too. The obverse of the coin contains the emblem of Palau and the denomination.
