The Beauty of Tibet

The Tibetan Ga-den Tangka denomination is widely considered the most beautiful of all Tibetan money. Struck in a land that for centuries saw few outsiders, this coin features a stylized lotus flower surrounded by the eight auspicious symbols of Buddhism: a vase, a golden fish, an infinite knot, the umbrella of sovereignty, a banner and the wheel of law. On the reverse is an eight-petaled wheel/flower within a star.

Mysterious Coins from an Exotic Land

Famous for its remote location that is bounded by the famous Himalayan Mountains and the Kunlun Shan, Tibet is topographically isolated from the rest of the world. Famous as the home of the Dalai Lama and his Buddhist monks, this curious forbidden realm exists literally above the clouds. It’s no wonder explorers have regarded the exotic kingdom as the fabled Shangri-La — the land of dreams. Due to Tibet’s extremely secluded setting near the top of the world, its coinage is quite scarce. But you don’t have to scale Mount Everest to secure one of these mysterious coins.

There have been many variations of this coin during the 98 years it was issued between 1850 and 1948 but they all share a beautiful design with the same auspicious symbols. Each coin available in this offer measures approximately 27 mm in diameter and has been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC)as being in Genuine condition. Order yours now.
