Baku in Wikipedia

The first plans for a rapid-transit system date to the 1930s, with the adoption of a new general plan for city development. After the second world war, Baku became an important city within the Caucasus area. Its population soon surpassed one million, a requirement of Soviet law for allowing construction of a metro system. In 1947, the Soviet Cabinet of Ministers issued a decree authorizing its construction. Work started in 1951. On November 6, 1967, Baku Metro opened to the public to become the Soviet Union's fifth underground system.

Pieces struck in white metal are privately issued fantasies. They were not issued for use in the metro.
