Silver Ounce 2020 Year of the Mouse, Coin from Mongolia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Year of the Mouse

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 2020 Year of the Mouse.

The Mint says about it:
The 12-year Chinese lunar earth cycle concluded in 2019 with the year of the pig. CIT celebrated the event with a superlative lunar coin, struck with smartminting technology, in the three-dimensional shape of a pig. The creative team of CIT managed to breathe new life into the crowded world of lunar coins that flood the numismatic market each year, and the success of the Jolly Silver Pig paved the way for its successor, ushering in the lunar metal cycle with the year of the mouse.

The Witty Silver Mouse issued for Mongolia is once again struck three-dimensionally, to produce a freestanding, adorable mouse that not only numismatists will come to cherish and adore.

Obverse
Mongolia / Silver Ounce 2020 Year of the Mouse - 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 (outside the circle with the bank's logo and inscriptions), the date of issue 2020.
