    Description

    According to legend, the dreaded Mongolian Death Worm ? which local people call?olgoi-khorkhoi?or loosely translated, “large intestine worm” ? has lived up to its name. It can kill in several fearsome ways, including spitting a stream of corrosive venom that is lethal to anything it hits, and if that doesn’t do the trick it is said to be able to electrocute its victims from a distance. Rarely seen and never photographed, it was mentioned in a 1926 book by paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, who didn’t believe in the animal’s existence but noted that stories of it circulated in Mongolia.

    • Contains 2 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: A depiction of the Mongolian Death Worm somewhere in the Gobi Desert, preparing to eat his next victim
    • Reverse: Large Intaglio Mint logo surrounded by plain border reading ?TWO TROY OUNCES? above and ?.999 FINE SILVER,? flanked by stars.
