Coins. From the first day of its establishment, along with other historical artifacts, the National Museum attaches great importance to the collection, preservation and study of coins, because coins are a very important source for studying the history of the Tajik people. The first coins entered the museum at the very beginning of its establishment in 1934, and this practice has continued ever since. It is worth mentioning that since the opening of the National museum named after K. Behzod until 1998, 1375 ancient, medieval and modern coins were collected in the fund of this museum. It should be noted that this measure was not only continued during the period of independence, but also greatly developed. In the 30 years of state independence, the number of coins of the National Museum has reached more than 21,000. Of course, this success in this field originates from the culture-oriented policy of the country’s leadership in the direction of raising highly qualified personnel. As we mentioned above, more than 21 thousand coins are protected and stored in the fund of the National Museum, among which there are many rare coins. In particular, the copper coins of the Achaemenids, the tetradrachm of Alexander the Great, the tetradrachms of the kings of Greece, Bokhtar and the Kushans, Sasanian, Abbasid, Somoni, and Timurid coins are among them, most of which are gold coins. Some of these rare coins are on display in the National Museum exposition. The main importance of these coins lies in the fact that all of them were found in the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan and provide very important information about the currency and coinage of this territory in different historical periods.
