Yes, it is either Ottoman Turkish or Egyptian.

The corrosion is obscuring most of the date and other details, but the toughra in the first picture is indicative of these places.

What is the diameter?

Edit: I now see the date ends in 7 if you rotate the 2d picture 90 degrees clockwise. If around 16 mm, this is a likely match: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces34177.html

Nice work @tdz. I think that you've nailed it.
