Product Description

2018 $10 Palau Totem Pole 2oz .999 Silver Antiqued Coin PCGS FD

The highlight of the World Money Fair 2018 in Berlin: 3-D Shaped Totem Pole. Ultra high relief using Smartminting technology. Just 499 pieces will be released in 2 ounces of pure .999 silver. Four totem animals are depicted: Thunderbird, Frog, Owl, and Killer Whale.

Totem poles are monumental carvings, a type of northwest coast art, consisting of poles, posts, or pillars, carved with symbols or figures. They are usually made from large trees, mostly western red cedar, by First Nations and indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest including northern northwest coast Haida, Tlingit, and Tsimshian communities in Southeast Alaska and British Columbia, Kwakwaka’wakw, and Nuu-chah-nulth communities in southern British Columbia, as well as the Coast Salish communities in Washington and British Columbia. The word totem derives from the Algonquian (most likely Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe)) word odoodem, "(his) kinship group.” 

The carvings may symbolize or commemorate ancestors, cultural beliefs that recount familiar legends, clan lineages, or notable events. The poles may also serve as functional architectural features, welcome signs for village visitors, mortuary vessels for the remains of deceased ancestors, or as a means to publicly ridicule someone. They may embody a historical narrative of significance to the people carving and installing the pole. Given the complexity and symbolic meanings of totem pole carvings, their placement and importance lies in the observer's knowledge and connection to the meanings of the figures and the culture in which they are embedded.

The reverse of the coin features a shaped and detailed totem pole.

The obverse features the coat of arms of Palau as well as the year of issue and $10 denomination.
