About the name of the coin tögrög (on modern coins — Mongolian cyrillic "Төгрөг"; on first tögrög coin, 1925 — Mongolian script "ᠲᠥᠭᠥᠷᠢᠭ"): the word "tögrög" refers to "circle" or a "circular object" (for example, coin) — from Chinese word "yuan" ("circle", "round", "coin")...
Nowadays, it is rarely used outside of referring to the Mongolian currency — except phrase "төгрөг сар" ("full moon" or "round moon"). There is also writing the name of the coin in tugrik format.
