Tajikistan, new coins in 2019
« on: April 25, 2019, 04:40:11 PM »
A partial set (20d and 3s) of new coin types of Tajikistan dated 2019 has appeared for sale on a Russian numismatic forum. The new coins will apparently have the specifications and obverse designs similar to the 2018 set, but the reverse designs are new. So far no more information available, official or other.

Here, ?????? ?????? ???????????? - ?????? ?????? ? ????

The link looks quite peculiar, but it seems to work atleast for me. I'm also not sure if the pictures are visible for unregistered users.

While they are new designs, it is a pity that the coins continue to look very similar to the ones they have been issuing for decades.

And they have a 3 somoni coin. Why? Decimal systems do not have a 3 unit, unless they are imitating the old USSR system, with 3 and 15 kopecks, etc.

Perhaps they are being nostalgic for the good old times? The large numbers on the dirams are also strikingly similar to some of the Soviet kopeck coins of the 1961 series.

Compare the 20 on this coin to the one behind the link above:

I agree. But on the other hand the Tajik coinage has not been without surprises! They suddenly increased the sizes of some of their coins back in 2011 and partially returned to the original plan last year while still retaining some of the larger coins. Is there any other modern nation that has done something like that?

Tajikistan just last year issued a new 3 somoni coin (see here) and this year they are changing it again. Very strange.

Images of the new coins saved here:

Apparently, the crown symbol is being given up and the entire series will change with denominations appearing as per demand and minting. There is no official indication of which of the smaller denomination may be given good bye.
