The Panama Canal is a 48-mile (77.1 km) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade.
One of the largest and most difficult engineering projects ever undertaken, the Panama Canal shortcut greatly reduced the amount of time taken for ships to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, enabling them to avoid the lengthy, hazardous Cape Horn route around the southernmost tip of South America via the Drake Passage or Strait of Magellan. The shorter, faster, and safer route to the U.S. West Coast and to nations in and around the Pacific Ocean allowed those places to become more integrated with the world economy.
The coin's reverse depicts in foreground a beautiful ship over the Panama Canal. On top of the coin the inscription "100 Years Panama Canal". On the bottom symbols like shells, palm trees and people shaking hands to represent the join of two Oceans, Pacific and Atlantic. The coin's obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the face value, the issue country and the date 2014.
