There are few playing cards that can lay claim to the symbolic resonance of the Ace of Spades. It’s a boon for the gambler who has it and a bane for others at the table who don’t. It’s a symbol of change and new beginnings for some, and of danger and doom for others, and has been often used by soldiers in war as a token of their own wishes for good luck or a deadly warning to their enemies. It even became the title of one of the most popular rock and roll anthems of all time, a song all about “pushing up the ante.” You can do just that for your own collection with a new pure gold collectible celebrating the card’s rich history, the 2023 Palau Ace of Spades Shaped 1/2 Gram Gold Coin.
The 2023 Palau Ace of Spades Shaped Gold Coin features a rectangular playing-card shape and a satiny silk finish. It ships fully insured against loss or damage and comes in a secure acrylic capsule, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse side features Palau’s “Rainbow’s End” emblem with Poseidon under a compass rose, flanked by a treasure chest and a mermaid and set on a shield with an inscription of the signature phrase. This is surrounded by a decorative design, with the inscription “Republic of Palau” appearing above and the coin’s face value below.
The coin’s reverse side is a sharply-detailed and accurate reproduction of the Ace of Spades playing-card design, with a level of accuracy and vividness in the design made possible by advanced minting technology.
This coin represents a partnership between Germany’s Mayer Mint, the Republic of Palau, and the Coin Investment Trust, paying tribute to the most valuable card in a standard playing deck in the English-speaking world. Its shaped design is possible through trademarked minting technology that makes it possible to strike small amounts of gold into relatively large shapes. This is done without sacrificing clean shapes, the sharpness of design and artwork, or overall exacting quality by the use of hyper-thin planchets.
