We consider a minimal action of a finitely generated semigroup by homeomorphisms of a circle, and show that the collection of translation numbers of individual elements completely determines the set of generators (up to a common continuous change of coordinates). One of the main tools used in the proof is the synchronization properties of random dynamics of circle homeomorphisms: Antonov's theorem and its corollaries.
