|Face Value||1000 Togrog|
Lunar Year issues are always popular with collectors, and the ones CIT strikes for Mongolia have become annual favorites! Starting back in 2016 with the «Year of the Monkey», the upcoming 2021 issue, which features the «Year of the Ox», will celebrate our 5th Anniversary of the series.
Like in years past, there will be three distinct and highly collectible releases – a unique one ounce silver coin in the shape of the Ox, a five gram silver banknote, and a 0.5 gram gold proof.
The first Ox is struck in one ounce of fine silver and shows the Mighty Ox as a three-dimensional numismatic sculpture. Its design reflects the power but also the aesthetic of this beautiful animal. The Ox is minted in a way that allows it to stand freely on its own which makes it an ideal display and conversation piece. It comes presented in a elegant collector’s box and is limited to only 999 pieces.
The second release shows the mighty Ox on a highly detailed five gram silver banknote. This special banknote shows wonderfully the contrast between the different silver finishes as well as the brilliant color that has been expertly applied. This note carries a Legal Tender denomination of 100 Togrog and is limited to only 5,000 pieces.
Lastly, the Ox is proudly displayed on a 0.5 gram gold proof. Meant as a perfect complement to the silver coin and banknote, you will see the image of the Ox which is similar to the way the one ounce shaped coin looks. The Ox is bordered by a highly detailed rim and carries a small mintage of only 5,000 pieces.
