This eye catching coin makes you feel like you are sitting in a theatre, you and your fellow audience members eagerly anticipating what is behind the curtain.
Who is not curious about the future? This person definitely is. Thus he opens the magic curtain to discover what he can expect.
Only those who have the opportunity to hold this coin in their hands will be able to discover just how spectacular the minting technology behind this issue is.
Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology this coin pictures this story on a stunning 2 oz silver coin.
The remarkable coin design
One side depicts a man pulling aside a curtain to reveal a futuristic scene.
A robot, a suspension railway and a flying vehicle can be seen as well as a rocket and innovative high-rise buildings; in the exergue the inscription DAYDREAMER / FUTURE 2022.
The other side presents the coat of arms of Palau with the circumscription REPUBLIC OF PALAU $10.
One side is recessed and has an unusually high rim, creating the illusion of a theatre stage.
A man protrudes from the coin, pulling aside a curtain that blocks the observer’s view from the action on stage. The man thus reveals the future, which we can experience from the auditorium so to speak.
The wonderful contrast between the clear lines of the curtain in Antique Finish and the scenery from the future painted in shades of blue spark our imagination and draw us right into this futuristic world.
The curtain as a boundary between reality and dream is an ancient motif that artists from the Greek painter Zeuxis to the street artist Banksy used again and again to illustrate the fact that, in addition to reality, there is an imaginative world out there.
CIT’s designers, who created this innovative motif, are thus following a long-standing tradition.
