Mongolia new 5,000-tögrög note variety confirmed

The 5,000-tögrög note dated 2003 (P68) apparently underwent a slight modification at some point between prefixes AF and AH.

On later issues (bottom), the signature ends with a curved horizontal line which is missing from earlier issues (top).

More significantly, on the back of earlier issues (top), there are bands of red at the ends of the horizontal bars along the lower edge which are not present on the later issues (bottom).

Mongolia 20,000-tögrög commemorative specimen confirmed


On 2 October 2006 Mongol Bank issued its first ever 20,000-tögrög (US$14.35) note into circulation (Pick 70). A limited number of 20,000-tögrög (US$14.35) notes with the watermark area on front were overprinted Great Mongol State 800 years 1206 - 2006. This commemorative was the first note in the world to use G&D’s LOOK (Laser Originated Optical Key), a security feature that creates laser-induced effects in the substrate, print color, foil, and varnish. In this case, the 4-digit serial number was written using LOOK.

The above specimen example of the overprinted commemorative has surfaced, along with reports that non-specimen notes with the commemorative overprint were available only encased in Lucite. If anyone can provide more information about this commemorative note, please post a comment. I’m particularly interested in determining if the non-specimen version of the overprinted note is available, as well as how many such notes were printed, and if they entered circulation or were sold as numismatic products at a premium to face value.
