Gold Half Gram 2019 Edelweiss, Coin from Mongolia
CoinGold Half Gram 2019 Edelweiss

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 internationally popular sizes, such as the half gram of gold mini-coin format.

The Mint says about this coin:
The Edelweiss is one of the most famous but also most endangered plants of the Alps. This botanic rarity, a symbol of mountains and untouched nature, is protected from picking by hikers in most areas. It can also be found in Mongolia, the issuing country of this coin.

The Edelweiss represents attributes like courage, loyalty and community. It is also well known as main theme from the famous musical/film hit "Sound of Music".

Obverse
Mongolia / Gold Half Gram 2019 Edelweiss - 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.

Below the logo, on two lines the face value: 1000 TӨГРӨГ (one thousand Tögrög, alternatively spelled Tugrik).

Around below, the name of the issuing country and the metal content: MONGOLIA 0.5g .9999 GOLD (one half of a gram of 99.99% gold).
