The author studies three hoards of cuphic coins from Poland: Klukowicze, Drohiczyn and Czekhov. Their composition marked radical change in monetary flows. Abbasid emissions of North Africa, Spain, Iran and Iraq were swept away by a powerful and rapid transit of Samanid silver. It would take just 60-70 days for the coins from monetary metal wholesale market of Central Asia (ash-Shash area) to arrive to Kiev, coming through Itil and Bulgar on the Volga  River, which was major mediatory center for their further distribution in north and north-western directions.
