Thank you for adding to this series (probably the best display on the Web). I was drawn to the series from Khwarezm because of the early representation of the Hammer & Sickle, earlier than The RSFSR. While Kamzolkin or Rudnev are credited with the design, you can see two earlier numismatic items here in the Moneta Museum for Chile (1895) or Weissenfels Germany (Notgeld, 1918).

Thanks for you kind words, Moneta. This seems to be the rarer of the two varieties for this denomination. Ironically, Khwarezm issued Soviet coinage before the Russians did. Khwarezm's first coinage was in 1920, while Russia's first Soviet coinage was 1921. Also, there were couple interesting and unique details about money from Soviet Central Asia. One, they were the only territories that combined religious symbols (crescent moon) and communist icons. Most other communist nations either discouraged or outlawed religion, so I found this curious. Two, Soviet Central Asia's communist symbols were altered from Russia's icon. Both Bukhara and Khwarezm only used farming instruments on their local arms. My guess is this is because the region was mostly, if not entirely agricultural, so they used icons more representative of the economic system. Just a guess though.
