**2018 Mongolian Lunar Year Of The Dog**

Paper Money-World | Kepi

This was a early gift from my husband in celebration of my birthday for 2018 Year Of The Dog. It's also the first Silver Note issued by Mongolia and the first with a lunar dog, featuring the Mongol Bankhar.  Now you might ask yourself that's nice, but why Mongolia?  Well a few years ago I sent in a DNA test through Ancestry.com and to my really "white girl" surprise I found out that I have alot of Mongolian in me!  How cool is that I thought!!! How exciting...perhaps a long distant relative of Genghis Khan???   ; )    Okay, so now back to this wonderful note.   The reverse shows a colorful version of the Mongol Bankhar with a graphic background along with the face value.   The obverse shows the Mongolian coat of arms along with the face value, Silver content (5 grams) and the mintage of 5,000 pieces. This note is so beautiful, it just shimmers with the silver running through it!  I have been researching this great dog as well. He is a must for the Mongolian Nomad people as he protects, herds, and is such an important part of their family and lifestyle.  If you'd like to learn more about these dogs I found a great web-site  www.bankhar.org.  Thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed it!

Very interesting blog. I have thought about sending in a sample to check ancestry. My problem is that I have a preconceived idea of what it should be and may be disappointed with the actual results. Beautiful note though.


Level 7

Very nice note. Nice design I hope you enjoy it I'm not that much into currency. But thanks for the history on it and the picture. You also have a happy year of the dog! Mike.
