In secret

Supplementing our very first Chart of the issue, we depict a penny minted in Lichtenstein and authorised by Palau, a western Pacific island country. 

The coin depicts the 1907-built Finnish icebreaker Tarmo, currently serving as a museum in Kotka.

The company Coin Invest Trust minted 2,500 pieces, weighing 20 grams of .925 silver each, making its market price 15 times higher than its face value. 

Leaving aside the utmost bizarre Finland-Lichtenstein-Palau out of the blue coin cooperation, as well as the fact that this coin does not commemorate any anniversary, we ask ourselves one question, namely what was the reason behind putting the "Rainbow's end" motif on the reverse?

Sheer coincidence? Did the artist experience some sort of a Disney-styled revelation? Masonic conspiracy?
