A Soviet coin that reads "NEW YORK" - and in English?

Who was responsible for that - the CIA, NSA, or the Freemasons?

Figleaf

In Soviet eyes, the name New York, combined with the logo is not the name of some city in the US, but a reference to the United Nations. Reacting specifically on US containment policies, it became an aim of the communist countries to legitimise themselves. UN membership was one way to achieve this. The UN was taken very seriously as long as it was convenient.

In the case of social policy, the UN was highly convenient, as Soviet social policy would always look better than US "laissez faire" policy that produced high levels of human waste. An occasion like the World Summit on Children (ВСЕМИРНАЯ ВСТРЕЧА НА ВЫСШЕМ УРОВНЕ В ИНТЕРЕСАХ ДЕТЕЙ - VSEMIRNAYA VSTRECHA NA VYSSHEM UROVNE V INTERESAKH DETEY) was an opportunity to parade the Soviet system and proclaim its superiority. All the better that it was in New York. Eat that, капиталист. :)

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
