The Saker Falcon is Mongolia’s national bird. The bird is widely known for its size, as well as it’s incredible eyesight and hunting skills.
The Saker Falcon was only recently declared the national bird of Mongolia. They decided to honor its strength and gallantry and name it their national bird in November of 2012. It is the second largest falcon in the world, and is a very skilled hunter. The species is endangered for many reasons, such as habitat destruction, illnesses, and many saker falcons are being sold on the black market. This silver 1 ounce coin with antique finish depicts a close up of the beloved Saker Falcon, with emphasis on it’s eyes. The coin comes in a plastic case, with a certificate.
