Friedrich August II (as a Saxonian Kurfurst) or August III (as a Polish king).
He was an only legal son of the August II the Strong (Polish King and Saxonian Kurfurst). Friedrich August II was born in Dresden in 1696 and become a Saxonian kurfurst in 1733 & a Polish king in 1734.
He was very fat and not very clever.
He died in 1763.

second coin is from Austria, 1 florin 1863A.
tell me what you think.
(and a higher percentage of large old silver!) DCH is correct on the Polish coin, it is indeed 1622. I have a 1623 in my collection, I got it several months ago for $9.50 US It's weird they only put the last two digits in the date on the coin, but on the other hand, we later collectors should be happy that they dated them at all, as it's fairly early in the era of dated coins! The 1600s seems to me to be when that really became the rule, rather than the exception.
I want to add an Ottoman Empire coin to my collection some day, there is a lot of history surrounding that empire and history is why I collect in the first place!
i appreciate it. I am going fast on this collection thing, i now have 76 ottoman coins. And above 150 european coins from Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, USA, UK, India, almost all arab countries, asian coins and ofcourse Islamic empire coins like Abbasids, ayyubid, umayyad, mamluk, safavid and mughal coins. And of course some roman, parthian, byzantine coins
btw, are you from dutch origin?
I would guess about 65% of my collection is from North America, being in the USA gives me very easy access to them, and I have a friend from Canada who has given me over 100 different Canadian coins I have hardly any Arabic coins...only 6...they have just not been in the bulk lots that most of my collection has come from!
I do have a little bit of Dutch but not too much, I am a whole lot of things and we don't even know for sure what all of it is, lost to history!
