To commemorate Cuban revolutionary and political leader Fidel Castro, who died on 25 November 2016, Mongolia has issued an appealing coin set with a classic design, minted with state-of-the-art technology.
The design is based on the coin’s predecessors the Chinggis Khaan issues of 2014 and 2016. Much like the latter version, Fidel Castro’s portrait is struck in an impressive smartminting© high relief. A hint of color is once again applied to accentuate facial features and darken shadows.
The gold coin presented alongside the silver issue nearly mirrors it in design. Thanks to CIT’s Big Gold Minting© process, the size of the gold coin increased from 11 mm to 13.92 mm while at the same time retaining relief height and detail.
