"The Kingdom of Bhutan proudly issues the inaugural Blessings of Happiness Lunar Coin Collection ‑ The Bhutan Lunar and Attraction Series (2016-2027), exclusively minted and marketed by The Singapore Mint.
Not only known as one of the happiest countries, the Kingdom of Bhutan is also popularly known as the Last Shangri‑La of the world. The Kingdom of Bhutan is heavily forested and perched atop of a mountain among the clouds. Home to a stunning natural scenery with an exotic mix of flora and fauna, the Kingdom is also embellished with majestic architectures of Dzongz, Stupas and Monasteries, resulting in a picturesque view from every angle.
Minted in ultra-high relief, this lunar series not only brings about blessings of happiness to the receiver, but is a master piece showcasing the innovative minting techniques."
