These coins are part of the Skulls Series. The series was created by Coin Invest Trust (CIT) for the Republic of Palau. The silver and gold skulls have proven to be incredibly popular for the mint and the issuing country. The coins come in various sizes, designs, and finishes, each with its own unique design. The mints very own Smartminting technology allows these coins to have a special High Relief finish.

The special antique finish used on these coins makes them appear older than they actually are. The Sugar Skull was the third design in the series.


The obverse features a beautiful sugar skull design with small design elements like crosses, flowers, leaves, and more. This sugar skull also has eyes and teeth. This side of the coin is three-dimensional and looks very much like a real skull.


On the reverse, you will find the Coat of Arms for the Republic of Palau, which features Neptune holding his trident. Next to him, you will see a treasure chest and mermaid. Above the crest, you will see a small kayak, which represents the migration of Palaus people to the country. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include Republic of Palau, 2018, .999, and $5.


CIT is a mint located in Liechtenstein, which is where it was established in 1970. This mint is responsible for producing silver coins for various countries all over the world. The mint created its own Smartminting technology, which allows the mint to push boundaries in minting. Smartminting allows the mint to strike coins in higher relief without the need for extra metal.


Provident Metals ships these coins in protective plastic capsules that provide protection during the shipping and storage process. Capsules are essential in protecting the finish and surface of the coins.
