The Evil Eye is a legend that dates back to ancient Roman and Greek times. It came to prominence during the Ottoman Empire and is defined as receiving an ominous glare from people when you have success and praise is put upon you. It is believed that when given it brings you misfortunes and bad luck. It became such a strong belief that entire cultures have turned to the act of praising God for blessings to avoid the powers of the Evil Eye.
The traditional Evil Eye with its vibrant colors was turned into amulets that were worn by millions to ward off the ill effects. The 2020 Palau version is struck from 1 oz of pure silver with a powerful design and glass enamelling. Deep, rich blues and whites make the coin really stand out and the detailed patterns minted into the coin give the Evil Eye a mystical quality.
