In 1991 Russia marked the 550th Anniversary of the birth of Ali-Shir Nava’i, also known as Alisher Navoi by striking a commemorative 1 rouble coin.

Although born in what is now Afghanistan, former Soviet and Uzbek sources regard Nava’i as an ethnic Uzbek. As far back as 1924 Soviet linguistic policy renamed the Chagatai language “Old Uzbek”. The coins are all uncirculated.
