More info

The Long-eared jerboa (Euchoreutes naso) is another species that is only to be found in the Gobi Desert. Barely 2-3 cm in size, this little mammal is extraordinary in two distinct ways. On the one hand, it can jump up to 1.5 m in height, i.e. up to 50 times the height of its body. Its long tail helps it to keep its balance while doing so. On the other, its ears are twice as big as its head. These enormous interceptors help the little nocturnal mouse to hunt insects, its favourite meal. Like the Gobi Bear, the almost unknown long-eared jerboa is only on Mongolia’s ‘Red List’ of endangered species. Thanks to a research project the European public has been able to marvel at about a dozen of these fascinating rodents since 2001.

The Gobi Desert is Alive.

A large number of animals and plants inhabit most of the world’s desert regions despite conditions that are – supposedly – completely hostile to life. Dry, barren surroundings and severe fluctuations in temperature force them to adjust to their environment in quite special ways and to deal very carefully with the sparse water resources available. After a sudden rainfall, however, the wilderness often bursts into glorious colour and the animal world witnesses astonishing activity.

Life in the Gobi Desert is particularly diverse. After the Sahara Desert, the world’s second largest arid area covers an area between China and Mongolia which exceeds one million square kilometres. Home to numerous insects and reptiles, it also hosts gazelles, leopards and wolves. Recently, the extremely sensitive eco-system has increasingly been put at risk – mainly as a result of human intervention. For this reason, Mongolia declared parts of the Gobi Desert national conservation areas at an early stage.

This fine silver and gold coin series with genuine CRYSTALLIZED (TM) - Swarovski Elements intends to continue building up sensitivity for a beautiful natural area that is now under threat. It displays three typical representatives of the Gobi Desert’s impressive fauna.
