Azerbaijan is a former Soviet Republic in the Transcaucasus. Known for its mineral wealth, Azerbaijan is also enjoying a booming tourism sector and has some of the largest agricultural resources in the region.

Azerbaijani Coins
The Republic of Azerbaijan issued its first coins in 1992, having only recently become independent of the USSR.

1996 Azerbaijan 50 Manat Silver Proof Coin
In 1996 it issued a 50 Manat coin to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the birth of Mohammed Fuzuli. Fuzuli was a great poet, and was recognised by UNESCO who named 1994 as Fuzuli Year, quite why it took Azerbaijan 2 years after this to issue a coin, we do not know. Also Fuzuli was born in Iraq, his parents were Azerbaijani. One side of the coins shows a portrait of Fuzuli, or Fusul.
The reverse shows a deer standing near a man comforting a fallen comrade, presumably illustrating a scene from one of Fuzili's poems.
This coin was produced by the British Royal Mint.
