Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck: Four-Leaf Clovers
This distinctive silver coin houses a genuine, one-of-a-kind four-leaf clover, while the other side reveals the seal of the Republic of Palau, as well as the coin’s value of $5. Issued in Palau in 2018, this coin weighs 1 ounce, measures 38.61 millimeters in diameter, and boasts .925 purity.

The four-leaf clover is a rare variation of the common three-leaf clover. The four leaves are said to represent faith, hope, love, and luck. And, according to tradition, such clovers bring good fortune to those who find them. Experts estimate that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every single four-leaf clover. American Griffin McDowell set a record when he found 51 four-leaf clovers in just one hour on August 12, 2013. In the July/August 2010 edition of Crop Science, published by the Crop Science Society of America, researchers from the University of Georgia reported finding the gene that turns ordinary three-leaf clovers into the coveted four-leaf types. Masked by the three-leaf gene and strongly influenced by environmental condition, molecular markers now make it possible to detect the presence of the gene for four-leaves and for breeders to work with it. Part of the “Ounce of Luck” collection. The Ounce of Luck also comes in a 1 gram gold version.
