Kazakhstan 100-TENGE (KM52) Archar (Mountain Sheep)

Non-circulating coin

Here is the Kazakh National Bank's explanation for this image as it first appears on the 1993 1 tenge coin:

"Archar" is an animal, which is the most respected by all Eurasian nomads. Imaginations of godlike sun and light principles were connected to it. Archar itself and its inviolate horns (khoshkar-muyiz) is the most popular mythological topic of Kazakh folklore. The representation was taken from memorials of Issyk Turmulus (VI-IV centuries BCE.).
