    Finally a very difficult spot is filled! Turkmenistan has been a big challenge. A design I liked popped up on eBay earlier this month and I pulled the (expensive) trigger. The coin celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Turkmenistan's independence with Oguz Khan riding a horse on the obverse (the letters TMB below stand for "Türkmenistanyň Merkezi Banky" - their central bank) and the State Emblem on the reverse. At just 300 examples, this becomes the lowest mintage coin in my set.

    The Legend of Oguz Khan is an interesting read, and you can find it summarized in the Wikipedia link below:
