China 1-YUAN (KM158)

Horses + Sheep

This circulating commemorative coin was issued in 1987 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region.

On the reverse is a pair of Mongolian farmers riding some fine looking horses while herding a flock of sheep. The woman farmer is even carrying a lamb in her arms, while the man suggests they should continue forward, and perhaps upward.
