The coin reverse is a representation of the head of what is the world’s largest equestrian statue, built in Mongolia, of its most famous son, Chinggis Khaan, the head of the Mongol hordes that went on to carve out the world’s largest contiguous land empire. The statue itself is a huge and stunning work of art formed in stainless steel, and of a scale hard to imagine. Frankly, it’s a fantastic subject for a coin, full of angular detail, formed in metal, and a figure of immense fascination around the world.
On the obverse of the coin we find Mongolia Coat of Arms, the weight, the gold fineness, some symbols of life & the value of the coin – 1000 Togrog.
Comes in a standard CIT wooden styled box with certifiacte of authenticity enclosed.
