Joyful Laughing Buddha Design

On the obverse of this coin is the emblem of the Republic of Palau. "REPUBLIC OF PALAU" arches over the image, while the face value of the coin, "1$," is inscribed below it. The design itself consists of a man rowing a canoe above a shield. The shield features Poseidon sitting on the ocean floor between an open treasure chest and a mermaid. His right hand is on the chest, while his left holds his famous trident.

The reverse is used in full as a laughing Buddha. The shirtless figure is seated and has his eyes closed as he lets out a hearty laugh.
