Sogd legend: xwt´w w´xswt´wy pny ("Coin of King Wahshutawa") // Turgesh tamga, Turkic runic letter "R" and Chinese 元 - yuan. 24mm, 2.52 grams. A. Kamyshev's "Early Medieval Monetary Complex of Semirechie" #21; Smirnova #1585; cf. Zeno #14.
Wahshutawa was probably the first (or one of the first) rulers of the Turgesh Confederation, as the later coins follow his design. His coins are very rare. This one is a lovely example, with black patina. It has a small casting flaw on the edge, but no repairs, cracks or other problems.
