I see this thread doesn't contain Mobutu Sese Seko yet.

That particular piece seems to be a medal, but yes, Niyazov was depicted on many coins, even circulation coins. In terms of birthday presents, six coins and three official medals were issued for that 60th. One shows his father, one his mother, others show his brothers, etc. Two years later, four coins for the 62nd birthday, and another two (65th) in 2005. Oh, and in 2006 they issued a set of six coins featuring Niyazov's literary works ... ::)

Several years ago, I wrote a topic about Mobutu: Zaire, and the many faces of Mobutu.

Georgia, 500 lari, 1995.  50th anniversary in World War 2.

Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill, De Gaulle.  Which of these men were dictators?
