Wild Mongolia: Magnificent Argali

Wild Mongolia: Magnificent Argali - PARTHAVA COIN


The argali (Mongolian for ram) is the largest species of wild
sheep that roams the highlands of western East Asia, the
Hima-layas, Tibet, and the Altai Mountains. The reverse of each
of these stunning coins shows a front facing view and a side
profile of an argali. The smartminting® relief extends all the
way to the edge of the coin! The front facing view of the argali
is expertly struck so that it appears like it is a ghosted image in
the background. Razor fine detail and relief combine together to
create this effect. The obverse shows the corkscrew horns of an
argali in ultra-high relief and the tilted effigy is shown where the
argali’s face is.
