The 1998 Asian Games, officially known as the XIII Asiad, was a multi-sport event celebrated in Bangkok, Thailand from 6th December – 20th December, 1998, with 376 events in 36 sports and disciplines featured in the Games.
The Official Emblem of the 13th Asian Games elements from Asia in general and Thailand in particular. It is based on the letter A, representing Asia and Athletes. The Maha Chedi, or pagoda shape, represents Thailand, in particular. The pinnacle of the Maha Chedi symbolises the knowledge, intelligence and athletic prowess of Thailand's forefathers, which are second to none. The top is part of the OCA logo.

The official Mascot of the 13th Asian Games was an elephant. The elephant is a very distinctive animal which has lived with the people of Thailand for many generations and is universally admired for its strengths and nobility. The mascot's name Chai-Yo - a Thai word meaning pleasure, gladness, success, unity and happiness - is usually shouted by a group of people to show their unity and solidarity.
This beautiful set of coins includes: 1 x Gold Plated Chai-Yo Coin, 1 x Silver Plated Chai-Yo Coin and 1 x Bronze Plated Chai-Yo Coin.  The coins are encapsulated and housed within a gold presentation box, with Bangkok 1998 in gold lettering on the front of the box and hologram.  A certificate of authenticity accompanies the coins.

Please note - one of the outer corners of the presentation box is slightly creased.
