Gold Half Gram 2022 Revolutionaries - Mother Teresa, Coin from Mongolia
CoinGold Half Gram 2022 Revolutionaries - Mother Teresa

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:
This is the 7th and last issue of our Revolutionaries series and it highlights a person who was a champion of the underprivileged.

Mother Teresa (1910 - 1997) was born as Anjezë Bojaxhiu in Skopje (now capital of North Macedonia). Honoured in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, she was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. After living in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. In 1950, Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation that today has over 4,500 nuns and is active in 133 countries. The congregation manages homes for people who are dying of HIV/Aids leprosy and tuberculosis. It also runs soup kitchens, dispensaries, mobile clinics, children's and family counselling programs, as well as orphanages and schools.

Mother Teresa, the Angel of Mercy, was called a "living saint" because she spent her whole life helping those who had nowhere to go and no one to turn to. Wherever she went Mother Teresa never turned away from difficult or unpleasant situations and always saw to the needs of the poorest of the poor, the homeless, the sick and the dying people. Teresa received a number of honours, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. She was canonised on 4th September 2016.

Obverse
Mongolia / Gold Half Gram 2022 Revolutionaries - Mother Teresa - 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).
