Turkey 5 and 10 Para (AH1293) 1899 to 1904

These coins come from the reign of Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II. The primary date is 1293AH on the Muslim (Hijri) calendar, or 1876AD on the Western (Gregorian) calendar. The coins are made of billon, a very low grade silver alloy, mostly copper (90%) with very little silver (10%).

The date and denomination are shown in eastern Arabic numerals. Both the date and denomination are important to value. Dates are shown as 1293AH, the year Abdul Hamid II started his reign, and a numeric year of his reign. See our secondary image for details.

Here are approximate catalog values for all dates. Only one coin, the 5 para year 30 coin, is substantially more valuable than all others.
