Comments on "Tajikistan: post-Soviet coinage"
« on: October 15, 2020, 10:57:47 AM »
You posted a series 2011 in reply #11. Comparing that to the picture of the 20 diram in reply #12, I would say that the lower picture is either of a different type, in which case there are two types 2011, or the lower picture is of a 2015 coin. Note the 2 in the denomination. The same style difference can be found in reply #15 and 16. Note that the set you post in reply #17 has a 5 diram 2011, while the others are dated 2015.

To me, it looks like the 2015 series has a slimmer and less elaborate denomination number than the 2011 series. If that is what you meant by "different font", I agree. I find it difficult to compare the lettering of the word ДИРАМ. My impression is that they are the same size. Maybe someone who has these coins in his collection can measure the length and height of the word?

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

I think all the 2015 series were slightly different, presumably made by a different mint.

According to numista and Wikipedia, a new series was issued in 2011, followed by yet another new series in 2018

There is no mention of these 2015 subtypes.

Numista lumps the 2015 and 2017 designs together with 2011. For example, 5 Diram has notes to describe the fonts differences between the years.

My 46th edition (2018/19) of the 20th century Schön lists the 2015 but doesn't mention any difference. And my 2017 21st century Schön doesn't list the 2011 5 Diram and higher.

Thank you Figleaf, andyg, and CannedMeat. Yes, I got confused.

You are right, CannedMeat. If I scroll down the screen on numista, I find the crucial details.

I will remember to do that in future.

In the next few minutes I will correct my previous posts.
