The island country of Palau has created what is probably the most cuddly silver coin in the world with the issue of the Teddy coin.

Reverse: national coat of arms of the South Sea island with inscription and face value
Material: sterling silver
Diameter: 38.61 mm
Weight: 20 g
Proof
Slab sealed with certificate

The furry teddy bear, in numerous variations, has comforted and delighted small children for over one hundred years. Even adults fall in love with the button eyes of the most popular toy in the world.

Who cannot remember having confided their secrets and thoughts to a small furry teddy bear? As a child one was convinced that the cuddly toy had a soul and that it understood every word one whispered to it. Therefore, for over one hundred years, the popular cuddly toy has been doing a valuable job. In the past the bear was mostly a symbol for danger, however this changed abruptly at the beginning of the 20th century - the bear found its way into the nurseries of this world.
The German company Steiff developed the very first cuddly bear, "55PB". According to legend, the teddy bear became the namesake of the American President of that time, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. On an unsuccessful bear hunt, Roosevelt refused to shoot a baby bear which was tied to a tree. Afterwards a cartoonist drew a small comic of Roosevelt and "Teddy's Bear". Immediately the name became popular and after initial difficulties in sales, the new children's favourite sold rapidly.

    Imballaggio accurato e dolce (per la presenza di alcune caramelle, anche se ne avrei fatto a meno volentieri a vantaggio di spese di spedizione più basse). Plico giunto entro i termini. Buon venditore
