This specimen is from a series struck in Istanbul during the reign of Sultan Muhammed V (r. 1909-1918). Ottoman coins were dated using regnal years; the reverse bears the date AH 1327 (= 1909 A.D.) while the obverse bears the regnal year 7. 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 1327-1333 (1909-14). The type is common.

Recorded mintage: 834,000.

Specification: 6.013 g, 0.83 fine silver, 0.1605 ASW.
