The wolverine is registered as vulnerable on the red list of endangered species and unfortunately already extinct in some parts of the earth. The reasons for its decimation are that they were hunted for their beautiful coat and the glutton's relentless drive for food, which does not stop at intruding houses. This new commemorative coin from Mongolia shows the wolverine in an artistic high relief. As a special feature the eyes are fit with two glistening crystalized Swarovski® elements.
Wolverines are powerful animals, which stand for courage and bravery. Despite their resemblence with small bears they are actually the largest members of the weasel family.
