1981 Mongolia Tugrik


Recommended Posts

This is a one year type coin commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Mongolian Revolution of 1921. This particular coin tends to come with a lot of "chatter", and often with muted luster due to the "baggy" look. I'm not sure how this gem escaped the fate of most others I have seen of this type, but the full luster and glowing aluminum-bronze composition make for a very attractive design. Note that the proper reverse of the coin is that with the soldier (Damdin Sükhbaatar) on horseback and large numerals "60". The obverse also bears the image of a (smaller central) horse as a part of the national arms of Mongolia. Note that a coin similar in design, but with the numerals "50" on the reverse was minted in 1971.


The revolution of 1921 was a military and political event by which Mongolian revolutionaries, with the assistance of the Soviet Red Army (communist), expelled Russian White Guards (anti-communist) from the country, and founded the Mongolian People's Republic in 1924. Although nominally an "independent" country, the Mongolian People's Republic was a satellite state of the Soviet Union until 1990. The revolution in 1921 also ended Chinese occupation of Mongolia, which had existed since 1919. The official Mongolian name of the revolution is the "People's Revolution of 1921" or simply the "People's Revolution".
