Turkmenistan coinage 1993 - current


Recommended Posts

Thought I'll compile what I have.


In the early years of Turkmenistan after it's independence from the Soviet Union, President Saparmurat Niyazov ruled Turkmenistan for 15 years. Featured on the reverse of the first series coinage (mandated by law) - this person is at best described as a cult. More can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saparmurad_Niyazov


Turkmenistan had also experienced high inflation rate which is brought under control in 2009. While many coins are struck in plated steel, this is an interesting and cheap set to assemble. What I found interesting is that there is a key emphasis on geometric designs which is evident on all coins.


Hope you enjoy the view:
