The Coin Invest Trust issued a set of two new Gold and Silver coin as a part of the revolutionary series. By now, the CIT Coin Invest “Revolutionaries” series comprises five issues. After Chinggis Khaan (2014), Fidel Castro (2017), Che Guevara (2018) and Karl Marx (2019), the 2020 edition is dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi, the great pioneer of nonviolent resistance.

The reverse depicts a frontal portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, in the left field, MAHATMA GANDHI in Latin and Mongolian script, in the field below, 2020. The obverse features the coat of arms of the Bank of Mongolia, below in Cyrillic script 1000 Togrog, and in Latin script MONGOLIA. On the silver coin 1 oz .999 SILVER, on the gold coin 0.5 g .9999 GOLD.

For its coin, CIT Coin Invest has chosen a depiction of Gandhi from his last years. We see him wearing traditional Indian clothing, a khadi kurta. For this silver coin, CIT Coin Invest combined state-of-the-art smart-minting technology with delicate color application in black and white to make the portrait even more impressive. For the gold coin, smart-minting was used, too, making the portrait seem monumental in relation to the coin’s size.

Mahatma Gandhi is not only revered as a national hero in India. Many people regard him as a symbol that change can be done without using force. Whether it be Martin Luther King or Nelson Mandela, many important historical figures refer to Gandhi as their great political role model.
