The coin is numbered on the edge, has a Silk Finish, is realized with an innovative technique, shows a brilliant coloration and comes in a themed case, with the Certificate of Authenticity. Limited mintage of only 499 pcs worldwide.
The reverse of the coin pays homage to The Kiss by Gustav Klimt and depicts a couple embracing each other, surrounded by a shimmering gold backdrop. The intricate patterns and stylized forms are though realized as if the image was embroidered on a loom. The design of the reverse is, in fact, full of incredible details of the stiches of colored sewing thread. On the right side there is also a sewing needle partially hidden from the surface of the loom, reappearing on the obverse. The obverse of the coin repeats the theme of embroidery without coloration, representing the downface side of the loom, where the inscription “FINE EMBROIDERY ART” is mirrored – the name of the series. In the center of the obverse, the Public Seal of Palau, together with the inscriptions: “REPUBLIC OF PALAU” – the issuing country and “20$” – the face value.
