On July 25th, 2014,T-bataar dinosaur post stamp “Mongol Post” has officially released a new set of postage stamp featuring Tarbosaurus bataar in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism of Mongolia.

During the official release ceremony, the Minister of Culture, Sport and Tourism Oyungerel Ts. said that just like the Tarbosaurus Bataar resulted in sculpture and art works of the same name, it also inspired to the creation of a new postage stamp.

"I hope such activities will not only protect our cultural heritage but also contribute to our economy" she added.

The picture of the new set was done by Bat-Erdene Ch. and designed by Gankhuyag J.

The very first printed postage stamp featuring Tarbosaurus bataar went on sale for 9,900 MNT. The stamps are available now at Central Post Office for 200-1,000 MNT.

The recently opened Central Museum of Dinosaur released a paint book previously for children depicting all "adventures" of T-bataar starting from smuggling from Mongolian soil to bringing back to home from the US and finding home in a newly established dinosaur museum.
