    The picturesque coin catches the eye by its unique design. But the main feature of the 925 rate silver coin is a piece of real volcanic lava, put into the image. That is for volcanic origin of Palau, the country of issue. The Republic of Palau is a group of Caroline Islands in western Pacific Ocean near Indonesia. Most of the islands were the submarine volcanoes in prehistoric times, so the commemorative coin is to celebrate the genesis of Palau. The reverse side bears the splendid picture of an erupting volcano with its lava, smoke and stones flying out from its throat. One of the stones is the real lava stone from the island. Volcano’s relief is very detailed and liquid lava is colored. There is a date of issue (2006) and the inscription “The Genesis of Palau” minted on this side of the coin. The obverse shows the beautiful image in the form of coat of arms which associates with tropical paradise. The image contains mermaids and the sunken chest with treasures in ornate frame. The words on the emblem say “Rainbow’s end” which is allegoric name of paradise. There is also the image of kayak above the emblem. The state name of Palau Islands and face value of the coin (5$) are indicated on the obverse too.
