Silver Ounce 2017 Revolutionaries - Fidel Castro, Coin from Mongolia
CoinSilver Ounce 2017 Revolutionaries - Fidel Castro

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 standard bullion sizes, including the internationally popular one ounce of silver format.

This coin is part of the Revolutionaries collection.

The Mint says about it:
To commemorate Cuban revolutionary and political leader Fidel Castro, who died on 25 November 2016, Mongolia has issued an appealing coin set with a classic design, minted with state-of-the-art technology. The design is based on the coin’s predecessors the Chinggis Khaan issues of 2014 and 2016. Much like the latter version, Fidel Castro’s portrait is struck in an impressive smartminting high relief. A hint of colour is once again applied to accentuate facial features and darken shadows.
