Nagorno-Karabakh 1-DRAM (KM28)

Non-circulating coin

Gray Wolf

The Gray Wolf (Canis lupis) is the largest member of the Canidae family and the sole ancestor of the domestic dog (all of them). It is probably the most studied animal in the world. For the most part, they stay well away from people.

I originally thought these were "fantasy" coins, created by Armenia as a political move to help gain recognition for the NKR (which later became the Republic of Artsakh). However, it seems that the Artsakh dram is official legal tender within the republic, although, the people mainly use the Armenian dram.
