Why purchase this 2018 Palau Little Emperor Penguin 0.5 gram Gold GEM BU coin?

Part of the increasingly popular Special Shapes Gold series introduced by Coin Invest Trust, this charming shaped coin honors the Emperor Penguin with a design dedicated to the young of the species. The tallest of the penguin species, the Emperor is the only penguin that breeds during the Antarctic winter. Struck from 0.016 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold by the Mayer Mint GmbH Germany for issue by the Republic of Palau, the penguin-shaped coin measures 13.92 mm, its mintage limited to 15,000.

Detailed Penguin Shaped Design

A playful, cartoon-like representation of an Emperor Penguin chick is depicted on the reverse, its facial features and traditional back and white shaded areas artfully defined by varied frosted and polished finishes.

Illustrated on the obverse is the Coat of Arms of Palau, an underwater scene depicting a graceful mermaid beside the god Neptune, with the inscription "RAINBOW'S END" below. Additional inscriptions include "REPUBLIC OF PALAU" and "1$."
