Silver Twenty-five Grams (25g), Coin Type from Mongolia - detailed information

Silver Twenty-five Grams (25g), Coin Type from Mongolia (issued 2001 - )
Coin TypeSilver Twenty-five Grams (25g)

The currency of Mongolia since 1925 has been the tögrög, which currently circulates mostly as banknotes due to the low value of earlier coins and the reluctance of the government to issue large denomination coins; however, the government has authorises many non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) coins to be issued for collector's purposes.

Collector coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes and are often not related to the country itself. Many of them are in sizes based on the troy ounce, but some are "metric" - such as twenty-five grams (25g) of silver.

Obverse
Mongolia / Silver Twenty-five Grams (25g) - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the logo of Mongolbank (the Bank of Mongolia), which is formed as a round coin on a lotus bouquet associated with purity, delicacy and stability. Three fire flames and a blooming flower are located inside the coin. The figure symbolises eternal development and youth and the three flames represent the main national treasures. At the nominal value location the Soyombo symbol is positioned, representative of the Mongol ethnicity. There is a variation from the official logo: the name of the Central Bank of Mongolia is written below the figure as MongolBank in Latin script, and not as МонголБанк in Cyrillic which is the official script of the Mongolian language and the way the name is normally written on the logo.

On the two sides of the logo, vertically, the inscription Mongol Uls in the traditional Mongolian script.
