Why order this Shaped 2018 $5 Palau Antiqued 1 oz Silver Gecko?

The Gecko, one of the smallest reptiles of the tropics, is a recognizable creature around the world. Now, Palau offers collectors the opportunity to own a coin that not only bears a design of the tiny creature, but one that is actually shaped like it. This 1 oz. Silver Coin was struck from .999 fine silver and is part of a mintage of just 999 pieces. It is perfect for collectors who value scarcity and who would like to add a playful addition to their collection. The coin comes in its original mint packaging and remains in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a lovely antiqued finish.

Playful Gecko Design

The obverse features an image that often appears on the obverse of Palau issues, a circle dominated by a large shield, in which Neptune sits on the ocean floor, holding his trident. He is flanked by an open treasure chest and a mermaid. Above the shield, a man rows an outrigger canoe, traditional transportation in the island nation. Inscriptions above and below these images read, "REPUBLIC OF PALAU" and "5$." Next to the circle, the name of the coin, "GECKO," is inscribed along with the coin's weight, "1 OZ," purity, "AG .999," and date, "2018."

The reverse is a gecko, which takes up the entire face. The shape of the coin is perfectly suited for the adorable reptile, the feet of which are stretched out as though it is climbing a wall in search of its next snack.
