    Kajinosuke Tanikaze, often called simply Tanikaze, became the theme of the next coin produced as a part of Sumo wrestling series by Mongolia. The legend of Sumo was born in 1750 and died as an active wrestler aged 44. Being the first real and alive yokozuma, Tanikaze also held the record of 63 consecutive victories which was broken in about 150 years. The Sumo wrestler was among the first ones who began to perform the ceremony of dohyo-iri. A number of Tanikaze’s images on traditional woodblocks are remained from the end of the XVIII century unlike the ones of other wrestlers. One of those pictures is the prototype of the coin’s reverse. The year of issue – 2005 – is minted below the colored figure of Tanikaze. The traditional Japanese pattern is placed along the upper rim of the coin like on other items of the same series. The obverse shows the Mongolian Coat of Arms together with silver rate and weight of the coin. The monetary denomination of the coin is 500 MNT and it is also indicated here. The item is struck by the proof technology from the pure precious metal.
