ISLAMIC, Ottoman Empire. Salim I Yavuz ('the Grim'), AH 918-926 / AD 1512-1520. Ashrafi (Gold, 20 mm, 3.42 g, 9 h), Misr, AH 924 = 1518. Numismatica Genevensis 7 (2012), 1896. Pere 118 var. (differing symbols). Sultan -. Of the highest rarity. Some areas of weakness, otherwise, very fine.


From an important collection of late Mamluk and Ottoman gold coins.

The style of this type is clearly reminiscent of Mamluk coins, which perhaps indicates that Mamluk artists were subsequently employed by Salim I.
