Coins

Tajiks have an ancient tradition of coinage and commodity-money relations. Minting of first coins in the territory of ancient Boctria and Sogdiana goes back to the III Century Before Christ, epoch of Selevkids’ predominance and Greek-Bactrian rules. These coins were called drachmas and were minted the same way as Greek coins. This tradition continued during the whole history of the tajik people until the twentieth century. The peak of money circulation and coin minting starts at the time when Somonids became rules of the first centralized state of Tajiks (875-999), and the currency of the sovereign Tajikistan is called Somoni in their honor. It should be noted that up to 30 minting centers existed in the territory of this powerful state.
