Description of obverse and reverse
One side depicts on the center line a great white shark, whose back comes out of the water showing the characteristic triangular fin and the tip of the tail fin; to its right, a woman sunbathes on a surfboard; color was applied to the field imitating the water’s surface shimmering in the sun; the shark’s dark outline contrasts with it, above in the same dark color GREAT WHITE SHARK.

The other side features the same scene from the perspective of the bottom of the sea; the inscription is mirror-inverted; the coat of arms of Palau with the legend REPUBLIC OF PALAU 5 $ is designed as a depiction of two mermaids playing in the water; on the surfboard the year 2021.

A brief annotation
The iconic scene reminiscent of the aesthetics of Steven Spielberg’s famous movie was transformed into a three-dimensional depiction on the coin by means of advanced smartminting© technology. Both the breathtaking, off center relief and the applied color, which captures the reflections of the sea’s shimmering surface in a naturalistic way onto the coin, are technological highlights.

Great White Shark by CIT Coin Invest lays emphasis on showing both sides: the big shark next to a small person can be perceived as a threat or as an example of peaceful co-existence.
