With its sharp talons and majestic presence, this bird of prey, steeped in nomadic tradition, takes center stage in two exceptional editions: the elegant Black Proof and the striking copper.
In the Skies with the Saker Falcon: A Nomadic Legacy
The Saker Falcon, Mongolia's national bird, is not just a creature of the skies but a symbol deeply rooted in the nomadic history of the steppes. Renowned for its prowess in falconry, this magnificent bird with a hooked beak has been a companion to nomadic tribes for thousands of years. The "Wild Mongolia" series pays homage to this tradition, celebrating the enduring bond between the nomads and their majestic feathered companions.

Each edition is a testament to the series' commitment to excellence and diversity.
