Whimsical Hippos Design
Obverse: A trio of hippos is depicted from below on the obverse, featuring their adorably rounded bellies and stubby limbs. A pair of mermaids swim in the rippling water alongside the creatures, with the inscription “REPUBLIC OF PALAU 5$” curving above their graceful forms. Additional inscriptions include “HIPPOS” and “2023,” reflected backwards from the reverse.
Reverse: The reverse illustrates the hippos as viewed from above, in a multi-colored marsh-like body of water, with their backs and heads breaching the surface. An adult swims beside its calf, as a lone hippo approaches carrying a log in its mouth. Inscribed “HIPPOS.”
