Taj Mahal Featured in
Wonders of the World Coin Series

Three new coins have been issued by Cambodia, each with latent dual dates 2005-2006. The most spectacular coin is a 1 oz. pure silver proof, with a 3.5 gm. pure gold insert; it features a vibrant hologram of the majestic Taj Mahal flashing a multitude of colors -- subtle pinks, mystic silver-gray, a tinge of blue, etc. Only 3,000 of these 10,000 Riels coins have been issued, priced at $239 each, including presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity.

Taj Mahal, meaning "Chosen one of the Palace" is the burial place of the beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan; she died in childbirth in 1631. Construction began in the following year, and the entire complex took more than 20,000 workers 22 years to complete.

A Kathak Dancer is featured in full color on the 20 gm. silver proof 3,000 Riels coin. This style of dancing was a fusion of Hindu and Muslim styles; it originated in Northern India during the period 1526-1761. The dancer, wearing more than 100 ankle bells, makes spectacular controlled spins. The limited mintage of 10,000 pieces are available for $69 each, including presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity.

The domed Taj Mahal, with 3-storied minarets at each corner, is also depicted on the 1/25 oz. pure gold prooflike brilliant uncirculated 3,000 Riels coin. A maximum of 28,000 have been authorized, and are being offered at $55 each.

The other side of each coin features a bust of King Jayayarman VII, who ruled Cambodia from 1162 to 1201, and the dual dates 2005 and 2006 alternating in latent images.


These are the fourth issues in Cambodia's Wonders of the World series that began in 2001 when its own architectural treasure, Angkor Wat, was featured. It continued with the Great Wall of China in 2003, and Egypt's Pyramids and Sphinx on dual-dated 2004/5 coins. These are all struck at the Singapore Mint.

The new Taj Mahal and Kathak Dancer coins are available from the distributor Panda America, 3460 Torrance Blvd., Suite 100, Torrance, CA 90503; (800) 472-6327. Add $5.50 per order for shipping and insurance. These and earlier issues in Cambodia's Wonders of the World series can be seen and purchased at www.pandaamerica.com (search word: "wonders") while supplies last.
