CoinSilver Twenty-five Grams 2017 Year of the Rooster

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 sizes based on the troy ounce, but some are "metric" - such as twenty-five grams (25g) of silver - such as this coin.

This coin is part of CIT's Lunar Year Collection dedicated to the Chinese Zodiac, and was issued to mark the 2017 Year of the Rooster.

The Mint says about it:
According to the ancient Chinese zodiac, human character is interpreted not by the month, but rather by the lunar year of birth. This zodiac is represented by one of twelve animals. People who are born in the year of the rooster are perceived to be hardworking, resourceful, courageous, talented and confident.
