Why add this 1/2 g Gold 2017 $1 Palau Golden Laughing Buddha to your collection?

This 2017 $1 Palau 1/2 g Gold Golden Laughing Buddha is a great choice not only for Buddhists but also for anyone who is interested in Eastern culture. The coin was struck in Germany's Mayer Mint from .9999 fine gold. Only 15,000 pieces were issued, so these are likely to be hard to find very soon.

Playful Laughing Buddha Design

The obverse of the coin features a man rowing a canoe above a shield. The canoe is an important means of transportation in the archipelago of Palau. Neptune sits on the ocean floor in the center of the shield. To his right (the holder's left) is an open treasure chest, while a mermaid sits to his left. The words "REPUBLIC OF PALAU" arch over the images, while the face value, "$1," is inscribed below them.

The reverse features a Laughing Buddha, which takes up the entire face of this shaped coin. His mouth is open and his eyes are closed, indicating a genuine and heartwarming laugh.

Impeccable MS70 ER

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation certified that this coin is in perfect condition by awarding it their highest grade, Mint State 70. They also labeled it an Early Release, which means that they received it for grading no more than thirty days after the coin's release from the mint.

Don't miss your chance to own this $1 Palau 2017 1/2 g Gold Golden Laughing Buddha.
