Silver Ounce 2019 Year of the Pig, Coin from Mongolia
CoinSilver Ounce 2019 Year of the Pig

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 CIT's Lunar Year Collection dedicated to the Chinese Zodiac, and was issued to mark the 2019 Year of the Pig.

The Mint says about it:
Mongolian lunar year issues are still rare and sought after. Beginning in 2016 with the Year of the Monkey, CIT has issued lunar coins for Mongolia every year in various specification ranging from minute 11mm gold coins to the large silver note canvas in the Year of the Dog.

For 2019 Mongolian lunar coins for the first time receive a smartminting treatment resulting in the charming and truly unique Jolly Silver Pig. Minted from one ounce of fine silver, the Jolly Silver Pig is a three-dimensional numismatic sculpture with beautiful floral ornaments. The pig is minted in a way that allows it stand freely on its own to make an ideal display and conversation piece. It is undoubtedly one of the most unique lunar coins ever minted and ships in an elegant collector’s box. The Jolly Silver Pig is flanked by two additional lunar coins - a traditional gold version and once again a five-gram silver note with brilliant surface finishing.

Obverse
Mongolia / Silver Ounce 2019 Year of the Pig - 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 1oz .999 SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver).

The rest of the surface features floral decorations. Below left (outside the circle with the bank's logo and inscriptions), the date of issue 2019.
