Mongolia’s 500-tugrik coin awarded Coin of the Year PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 26 January 2009
ImageThe Coin of the Year Award for 2009 has been won by Mongolia for a silver 500-tugrik coin that depicts a wolverine with diamond eyes. 

An international panel made the selection in a second round of balloting that concluded in mid-January. The judges chose from among the winners of 10 categories determined by their first round of voting. 

The award will be presented February 7 in a special ceremony at the World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany, by David C. Harper on behalf of World Coin News, sponsor of the award and a sister publication to Numismatic News.          

"The judges had to be drawn to the eyes of the wolverine. They are quite compelling," Harper said about the Mongolian coin.
