Starfishes (asteroidea) have existed for over 300 million years. They are divided in 35 families with about 1600 different subspecies. The colour spectrum for these echinoderms reaches from yellow to red up until purple; some species are even blue and green. The body length can vary between a diameter of merely one centimetre and almost one meter.

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.
