Turkey 10, 20, 100 Para, 1, 5 Kurush 1808
Hi Paul -- These old coins from Turkey are usually pretty well beat up. If you can find one in decent condition, like the one in our picture, you start to accrue collector value. Their precious metal content (silver) is minimal, with compositions of only about 20 percent silver, 80 percent non-precious metal. Some coins have a small rosette underneath the ribbon at the bottom of the crescent shape, others do not have this rosette. The presence or absence of the rosette does not make a very big difference in value. The coin in our picture has the rosette.
Coin: 8727 , Genre: Islamic Hindu Buddhist
