    It’s not something I’m immediately familiar with, sorry, however the dates suggest a centenary commemorative, iconography is communist, but a crossed sword and mace rather than hammer & sickle says not Soviet. Not East German, Hungarian, Czechoslovakian, Bulgarian or Polish either… maybe one of the ‘stans’?

    Now I’ve seen yours I will keep an eye out for anything similar in my travels and get back to you.

    The inscription on the obverse is “Military Commissariat 1918-2018” so it appears to be commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Military Commissariat, but I agree that it does not appear to be Russian.
