KM catalogue numbers are 1 to 5 and 13. You have all post-communist circulation coins dated 1999, except KM 12, 500 manat. Turkmenistan's economy was gravely mis-managed by Nijazov, resulting in bad inflation. Accordingly, a new series of circulation coins dated 2009 was issued denominated in new manats. A new manat is 5000 old manats. A new manat is divided in 100 (new) tenge. Denominations are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 tenge, 1 and 2 manat. As inflation has been hovering around 5% since 2010, the lower values are likely to be no longer in circulation.

Turkmenistan is a Soviet invention that became reality when communism imploded. Of course, the land that is now Turmenistan existed before. Its most famous mint town was Merv. For an example of an ancient coin, minted in Turkmenistan, see here.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
