The work, as you can see above, is an ambitious one to replicate on a coin, even a smartminted one, but an initial look is very promising. A marble-effect colour has been applied to the statue face, and the background is in a finish called Black Proof. We’re unsure if that is colour, or ruthenium/rhodium plating. The end result is an increased contrast, allowing the sculpture to stand out better than it would against a polished silver finish.

The outer area of each face is a highly detailed patterned strike that makes a great frame for the main subject. The date of issue in Roman numerals is a nice touch. All other inscriptions, and the shield of Palau, are well placed and well realised. Coming in a box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
