Coin Story

Although Mongolia’s population counts only a little more than three million people, they have been successful at the Olympic Games time and again. Mongolia’s National Olympic Committee was founded in 1956 and was accepted by the International Olympic Committee in 1962.
As in the Summer Olympics in Mexico City the top Mongolian athletes continually won silver and bronze medals.
Especially in martial arts, such as judo, wrestling and boxing, they belong to the world’s best. At the Summer Olympics 2008
in Beijing their achievements were rewarded with two silver and the first gold medals in Mongolia’s Olympic history.

The winners:
- Gold for Enkhbat Badar-Uugan Boxing
- Gold for Naidan Tuvshinbayar Judo
- Silver for Purevdorj Serdamba Boxing
- Silver for Otryad Gundegmaa Shooting

In the same year Dambadondog Baatarjav won the first medal for Mongolia at the Paralympics Games in the discipline archery. Therewith 2008 was the most successful year for Mongolia at the Olympic Games. These coin series pay homage to these athletes‘ great achievements.
