For centuries, artists have been captivated by the human skull. From renaissance vanity paintings to modern day tattoo art, images of the skull remind us that life is short and the time to live our dreams is now. The bones of the skull are divided into two main groups: the bones of the cranium, and the bones of the face. Eight bones make up the cranium, and 14 bones make up the facial skeleton, but the teeth are not considered to be bones of the skull. Besides your peeper holes, your smellin’ hole, and your pie hole, the skull is full of tiny holes called foramina. These openings allow for the passage of the nerves and blood vessels that innervate the face. The largest hole in the skull is where the vertebral column joins the base of the skull, and is called the foramen magnum. Human skulls look different depending on if they are male or female, and depending on what part of the world they come from.
The reverse of the coin is shaped like what it seems to be a remain of a Pirate’s head. The bandana on the skull’s forehead suggests that he could have been a very fearsome Pirate when in life. The obverse of the coin depicts the Coat of Arms of Palau and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIC OF PALAU” – the issuing country, “.999” – the fineness of the Silver, “5$” – the face value and “2017” – the year of issue.
