On the front side of the coin was placed the image of al-Farabi and on the reverse side is the logo of "Ruhani zhangyru" with an eagle hovering over the steppes. According to experts, the eagle represents the revival of the cultural and spiritual heritage of the Kazakh people.

So, in February of this year, Kazakhstan films will be shown at leading universities in the United States. During the year, it is planned to hold photo exhibitions and round tables, as well as the presentation of books about the life and work of al-Farabi and Abay for American expert and academic circles.

It should be noted that the information resources of the Embassy regularly publish materials and photos of Western travelers about the history of Kazakhstan in the XIX century.
