The Nautilus (nautilus) is even older than the Starfish. For over 500 million years the cephalopod has populated the ocean as a living fossil. The Nautilus has the same limy shell as its close relative, the ammonite. This characteristic protective shell is subdivided into chambers, whereas the Nautilus uses the last fully open chamber, also the largest, as the living chamber.
The pacific islands of Palau are a paradise for diving enthusiasts. Within these pristine reefs and the jagged steep face on the coastline the biggest marine diversity in the world is situated: fascinating fish, corals and shells in all shapes and colours. By means of these three new coins in dazzling prism technology Palau would like to point out its marvellous yet extreme delicate Sea World.
