To make a long story short, we received some coins through a death in the family. My 11 year old daughter has taken a big interest in them and I can't tell you how happy I am to see her fascinated with something other than video games.lol We have been able to identify many of them but still have several to find. I am not sure if some of them are even coins. They may be medals or tokens of some sort because they have rings. I am posting a pictue of all of them but I can post individual ones too. My camera is awful and the pictures did not turn out very good. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give us.

Are these all the coins or only the ones that you have not identified? We need a brighter and closer picture of the coins, maybe 2 or 3 coins at a time, and also pictures of the reverse.

You can add pictures to this topic, then possibly identify then as coin #1 or coin #2.

Actually, the strange figure inside the wreath in called a tughra; it symbolizes a particular sultan of the Ottoman Empire. Below the tughra, you can also see four digits: the date. A little blurry, but either 1324 (1906), or 1334 (1915).

I'm fairly sure these are pendants rather than coins turned into pendants. Obviously they look Chinese and Ottoman - but I'm suspicious that they look so similar - so they are likely just pendants made to look like coins

We actually prefer people post items in separate threads, so they can be moved to the appropriate place once they're identified. You've got a mixture of coins, medals and tokens here, and some things which might never be identified.

Numbering from the top left of your first pics:

#1: Identified above.

#2: I have no idea. It's definitely not a coin. Perhaps jewellery of some kind.

#3: Looks like an old Ottoman coin, but we'll really need to see both sides of this one. I can;t tell if it's a gold coin, or a silver coin that's gold-plated, or a jewellery replica.

#4: This one appears to be a jewellery replica of an Ottoman gold coin, but it might be another government medal. Need to see the other side.

#5: Ottoman copper coin, probably Turkish given the origin of most other items here.

#6: Looks like a Chinese machine-struck 1 cash coin, much like this one.

#7: I believe it's a 2 drachmai from Greece. Like this.

#8: I believe this is either another Ottoman copepr coin, or a Galata Bridge token.

#9: a Greek bronze coin.

#10: an Italian coin.

#11: Can't see it too clearly, but I think it's another Ottoman coin.
