from Goldberg sale 98, lot 3178
Turkey G98-3178r.jpg

This specimen was lot 3178 in Goldberg sale 98 (Los Angeles, June 2017), where it sold for $258.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "Turkey. 20 Kurush (20 Piastres), AH1336/1 (1917). Muhammed VI, 1918-1922. Obverse: Toughra with no flower in field. Toned. NGC graded AU-50. WINGS." This specimen is from a series struck in Istanbul during the reign of Sultan Muhammed VI (r. 1918-23), the last Ottoman sultan. This denomination was introduced during the rule of Sultan Abdul Mejid (r. 1839-61). Ottoman coins were dated using regnal years; the reverse bears the date AH 1336 (= 1917 A.D.) while the obverse bears the regnal year 1 (= 1917 A.D.). The Hejira calendar uses a lunar year instead of a solar year, so its starting date moves from year to year. This type was issued AH 1336-37 (1917-18) and is the last of the denomination. At the end of World War One, the sultan was a puppet of Ataturk and his friends, soon to be deposed.

Recorded mintage: unknown but not common.

Specification: 24.05 g, .830 fine silver, .641 troy oz ASW.
