A brief annotation
This coin continues the series «Cult animals-totems of nomads». Its design is based on a combination of a naturalistic and stenciled view of the depicted animal with an allegorical presentation under the «Saka animal style». 

The deer is one of the cult sacred animals in the beliefs of nomadic peoples. In the view of the Proto-Turks, this totem was interpreted as a progenitor and served as a symbol of procreation.
