For those wondering why Turkey would celebrate an Azerbaijani poet, Azerbaijani is a Turkic language. I am told Azerbaijanis readily understand Turkish. Not sure about the reverse. Turkmen has a similar position vis a vis Turkish. A case of languages uniting, rather than dividing.

Austria issues pure copper coins (which I have almost all). :)
