  • Ein Prosit - a toast

    Unique, beautiful and well packaged. This coin is an appealing piece in many aspects. The design supports the German style and craftsmanship once known to be of the highest quality. Glad I have added this to my collection.

  • Too Little Silver!!!

    This is a great coin, but there is too little silver for the price of the coin! The uniqueness of the coin is the shape. I love that uniqueness, but there is only 2.5 grams of silver. Remember, there is 32.5 grams of silver in an ounce of silver. That means that it is 30 grams of silver short of an ounce of silver! Palau coins are usually very reasonably price coin. Sooo, why is it priced so high. I won't sent it back because it reminds me of my time in Germany, but I am disappointed in the price.
