    It registers as the same gold content as an American Gold Eagle. Not sure what it is? Thanks for any assistance!

    Kemal Ataturk AV 500 Piastres (Deluxe Issue)

    Ottoman Sultan Abdul Medjid started a "currency reform" in 1844. With reform the mint in Islambul began striking AV 12 1/2 25 50 100 250 500 Piastres coinage in standard and deluxe. By 1922 the now Republic continued this policy. The Deluxe ones are highly prized and beautifull. Some have ext. low mintages.
