The use of a horseshoe as a symbol of good luck dates back to early times when horses played an integral part in the life of many people. They were originally made of iron, a material that was believed to ward off evil spirits. Palau captures that spirt with this 1 ounce ultra high relief .999 silver coin that is replete with amazing smartminting® details.
This fantastic ultra high relief silver coin follows the the 2021 edition that was a fast sellout at the mint. The 2022 Palau Horseshoe includes all the fantastic details in addition to being fully gilded in beautiful, silk finished rose gold.
Opinion is divided as to which way up the horseshoe ought to be nailed. Some say the ends should point up, so that the horseshoe catches the luck, and that the ends pointing down allow the good luck to leak out; others say they should point down, so that the luck is poured upon those entering the home.
Only 999 coins in total will be minted.
