History of Ottoman Coins - Volume 4

The 4th volume of the book “History of Ottoman Coins” studies in detail the coins of Sultan Mehmed III and Sultan Ahmed I.

Under the influence of the military, economic and social structure, the Ottoman money system naturally moved towards a new process by the end of the 16th century. This process lasted approximately one hundred years during the 1600s and struck a heavy blow to the Ottoman financial structure. The Ottoman mines, which were unable to compete with the cheap silver ore that Europe obtained from America, began to shut down one after another. This was followed by the shutdown of mints. Thus, the coins of Mehmed III and Ahmed I, the early sultans of this period, were struck under these difficult conditions.

This volume of the book, expected to be completed in 9 volumes, gives useful information on Sultan Mehmed III and Sultan Ahmed I, conveying

  • Chronological events of their 22 years reign
  • Major historical milestones in their reign
  • Coins of the Sultans explained in detail

The volume includes the pictures of 270 silver and gold coins of Sultan Mehmed III and 200 coins of Sultan Ahmed I. Furthermore, this section comprises also the regional history related to the 40 cities striking this epoch’s Ottoman coins, describing the characteristics of the coins struck in those cities.

The last section of the book depicts a coin inventory related to the Sultans.
