early government bond from Mongolia People's Republic

Earlier, Spink sold a bond from Inner Mongolia, see there. This time a bond from the state of Mongolia will be offered (lot 3341 in the auction, image shown above). In 1924 the Mongolian People's Republic was established with a communist regime. The country suffered from collectivization, economic downturn, unrest, uprisings and during the 1930s from repression and genocide by Stalin. This government bond was issued for 25 Tugrik in 1932. The tugrik (tögrög) was introduced in 1925 at a value equal to one Soviet ruble (18 grams of silver).
