Diademed head left / Circular Sogdian legend around tamgha, ch'ch'n n'p'ch wnwn xwb ("Wanwan ruler of Chachan people"). 13.5mm, 0.81 grams. Smirnova -; Shagalov/Kuznetzov type 29.
 
Alternative interpretation of the reverse legend exists, where "Wanwan" is interpreted not as a name but as a title "Victorious". Rare very small late issue. This is a very rare variety with the bust right – most of the coins of Wanwan have a bust facing left. The only coin of this type with the bust right we have ever handled.
