Happiest Lunar Coin Collection
As noted by the 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 masterpiece showcasing the innovative minting techniques.”
Bhutan Year of the Ox
The obverse highlights the Year of the Ox with this wonderfully unique design composed of floral, leaves, and clouds in the form of a very pleasant and happy ox. An attractive, artistic frame surrounds the central image. Inscriptions encircling the top rim include, “2021 YEAR OF THE OX.” A decorative banner at the bottom rim includes the face value in Ngultrum and the silver fineness, “NU.1000 . 1/4 OZ 999.9 FINE GOLD.”
The reverse depicts the incredibly beautiful Paro Valley in the center inset, colorized to display something of its wonderful lushness. Inscriptions encircling the rim include, “KINGDOM OF BHUTAN . 2021.” Encircling the center inset is an attractive series of cloud emblems. Also, as noted by the mint,
“Paro Valley is one of the most attractive places in Bhutan. As of today, there are over 155 temples and monasteries in the area, some dating as far back as the 14th century. This lush location is one of the widest valleys in the kingdom which produces tremendous amounts of grains on its fertile terraced fields that also has a beautiful, crystalline river meandering down its entire stretch.”
