    These are difficult to ID.

    The big one is, no doubt, from the Ottoman Empire (e.g., Turkey, Egypt) and its date is 1222 on the Islamic calendar, about 1834 on the Gregorian calendar.

    Trouble is, just about all coins from that Empire and that date are made of silver or gold. Your coin looks like copper. Is that correct? Is the large coin made of copper?

    DO NOT CLEAN YOUR COINS. CLEANING RUINS VALUE.

  • Hi Tina --

    The one in the middle looks like real gold. A jeweler can tell for sure. If real, it is worth its weight in gold. The hole eliminates any coin collector value over and above gold value. Gold is selling around $1800 US dollars per ounce.

    I have no knowledge of the small, uniface coin at the bottom. Looks like a replica of some kind. Maybe a souvenir.

    The big one still have me puzzled. I have found three coins which look like yours. Trouble is, the three I've found are all -- supposedly -- counterfeits. Yours looks genuine, not a fake.

    Here are the three I've found.

    If you do research and find something other than counterfeits, please let me know.
