Toshkent in Wikipedia

Although Tashkent was the fourth largest city in the Soviet Union, it was able to open its underground railway system only in 1977. It was the seventh metro to be built in the former USSR. Its stations are particularly richly decorated. The text NPO on some Toshkent tokens stands for НАУКА ПРОИЗВОДСТВЕННАЯ АССОЦИАЦИЯ, science production association.

The M on a bar inscribed METPO may be an old logo. Some sources show a blue M in a trilobe with the text Toshkent METRO in black letters, the first word in bold font underneath. However, there is no evidence that this logo is used.

Toshkent Metro in Wikipedia

There are aluminium tokens, dated 1992. These tokens are fantasies. They could not be used to enter the subway system. Aluminium tokens are not suitable for machines, because they are too light.
