Commemorative Coins (World Coin)
Nauru recommenced issuing commemorative coins in 2017, and has now issued over 50 new coins through World Coin.
In 2018-19 this service generated $15,569 in seigniorage (commission revenue into Treasury), and $16,000 in 2019-20. This is based on actual sales of the various coins to coin collectors throughout the world.
Most Pacific Island Countries are involved in this revenue raising with World Coin. Issuing commemorative coins both increases Nauru’s revenue and has a positive effect on the image of Nauru.
