On the obverse an artistic represented dragon devours the Sun. The inscription at the bottom of the coin: "FULL SOLAR ECLIPSE MONGOLIA 1997". Underneath yurts. On the reverse a head of a man is represented, presumably a portrait of Genghis Khan. Beside it appears a script perhaps the name of the person depicted. It is not yet deciphered.
