The Central Bank of Myanmar has been issuing quality tical, half tical and quarter tical gold coins since 1991.
A single star is depicted in the centre of the tical gold coin. Images of a plowing farmer and an elephant hauling a log are depicted on the half and quarter tical gold coins.
Owing to high demand from the public, the quarter tical gold coins have run out of stock and a quarter tical gold coin with a new design will soon be introduced. The new quarter tical gold coin has a diameter of 18 millimetres and a thickness of 1 millimetre. At the centre of the face of the gold coin is a portrait of Bogyoke Aung San with the words Aung San written at the bottom. Along the circumference of the coin, the words “Central Bank of Myanmar” and “4.082 gm 999.9 Fine Gold” will be etched, while the opposite face will have the “Central Bank of Myanmar 2018, quarter tical, 999.9 Fine Gold” embossed in the Myanmar language.
When a quarter tical gold coin is bought, the Central Bank of Myanmar governor and the gold coin casting department head will provide a certificate of authenticity.
The quarter tical gold coins can be bought at the Myanma Gem Enterprise sales centres (Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, Mandalay) at the prevailing gold rate of the day, along with a payment of the casting fee of Ks12,500, according to the Central Bank of Myanmar.
