The evolution of video game controllers is quite fascinating. If you go back to the earliest models in the 1960s and 70s, they essentially looked like plastic blocks. By 1974, they started to have some semblance of modern controllers thanks to the wildly popular table tennis game Pong. However, even when Nintendo released its first classic controller in 1985, it still looked primitive despite a more complex button layout. It wasn’t until the Sega Mega Drive in 1988 that controllers became more sophisticated in their design. Finally, in 1994 Sony introduced the first Play Station and game controller that we know and love today.
The Palau coat of arms is shown on the obverse of 2022 1/2 Gram Gold Game Controller Shaped Coins. There is an inscription above it that reads Republic of Palau, with sets of three stars extending out in both directions. Towards the lower portion of the coin is the denomination of $1.
The iconic image of a game controller is featured on the reverse of these 2022 Gold Palau Game Controller Shaped Coins. Anyone who has ever spent any time playing video games will instantly recognize this shape and design. It includes the standard 10 buttons on the front face of most game controllers as well as the words Next Level spelled across the mid-section.
