Turkish Coins

Many interesting gold coins have been released in Turkey over the years. With a history spanning back thousands of years and an empire ranging from Persia to Europe, it has long been considered a bridge-way between the Middle East and the West. From the end of Byzantine empire into the Ottoman empire, Turkey has produced many distinctive coins including: the Altin, Mahbub and Kurush. The Kurush coins are amongst the most well-known and they are sometimes known as Mecidi, named after Abdul Mejid, the pioneer of Turkish currency reforms.
