the most famous and remarkable gold coins of the Ottoman Empire are those of the km # 638 series. 1HAYRIYE ALTIN these coins were used for commercial transactions as well as for jewelery. at the time of his kingdom MAHMUD II (1828 - 1833) it had given a relative liberty to the subordinate peoples to have in their possession such gold coins. at that time many poor people living in the countryside managed to get these coins by working hard they gathered them not to feel rich but more to endow their daughters. so when the time of the wedding arrived, they pierced these fine gold coins and made a golden necklace and splashed them on the neck of the bride and with these golden coins the new couple made their new house. This is the reason why most of these coins are pierced. many of these coins have disappeared since then and some have been rescued.and have remained very little because after the fall of the Ottoman empire and the creation of the new Turkish state, the Turks banned every transaction with these coins and after he had gleaned as much as he could have melted them. this law has been up to date. But there is something that the collectors of the Ottoman coins maybe not aware of is that among these golden Ottoman coins of that period some of them are really very rare. among those golden coins that left me as an inheritance my grandmother is that in the photo with date of cut 1223/23. The coins of this date are really difficult to find anyone who love these coins and is a fanatical collector of Ottoman coins There are also some variations in decorative flowers in relation to the other coins of this series and I believe that for all these reasons and for the history of these coins, the valuation of their collectible value must be very large. Thanks
To all coin people , I'm a newbie to this forum and to the coin world. Could you guys help me with something? It may sound naive to some of you out there. But it's ok, this is why I start off with "I'm a newbie". I just received some old Singaporean coins from my grandma. Apparently she has been holding them for awhile. I wonder what's their value now. They are: Singapore 50 cents range from 1967 to 1982 Singapore 20 cents range from 1967 to 1980 Singapore 10 cents range from 1967 to 1980 Singapore 5 cents from 1967 If their value is their face value. I'm just going to use them to buy lunch. Thanks all!
I have these coins that i inherited recently. Can anyone tell what they are, any information would help. From what i can see the coin on the bottom left has a face engraved and the one immediately to the right has a person standing holding something over their head. thank you
