Help to identify this middle eastern coin

6 posts in this topic

My Dad gave me a bag of Middle Eastern coins to ID for him. I was able to identify all of the coins but one. Could any one here lend some assistance on this one?

 

I was thinking Turkey but could not find a match in the Krause book.

 

See photo.

 

Thanks

Have a great day

Jim

I looked in the archives of Heritage Auctions under coins from Turkey and there were several coins that appeared to have a design very similar to the one your looking for.

 

You might try looking there as I only quickly scanned through them. Good luck.

It is an Egyptian coin, from the year AH1293= 1876.

The denomination is a Guerche, a copper- nickel coin and there were approx 200,000 minted.

The coin comes from the reign of Abdul Hamid II who reigned from AH1293 to 1327 (1876-1909).

 

Hope that helps,John.
