The obverse of 2022 Basketball Shaped 1/2 Gram Gold Coins features the Palau coat of arms. In the middle of the design, there is a merman wielding a trident with a mermaid beside him. Together, they guard a treasure chest. Other details include a compass, a canoe, and the words Rainbows End. Inscriptions are also included across the edge reading REPUBLIC OF PALAU and $1.


On the reverse side of 2022 Palau Shaped 1/2 Gram Gold Coins, there is a basketball design. While the sizes of the official basketballs vary depending on the level of play, generally they all feature the same pattern. This consists of recessed ribs arranged along the surface in curved lines. Between these ribs are leather patches, usually orange in color. Another classic color scheme involves red, white, and blue leather.


While working at the Springfield YMCA in 1891, James Naismith was tasked with developing a game for kids to play indoors during the bitter cold winter season. Naismith was especially compelled to create a game that was fair and would not rile the tempers of unruly kids experiencing cabin fever. Inspired by games like soccer, hockey, and football, Naismith ultimately devised the rules for basketball, many of which remain unchanged to this day.
