Ottoman copper coin found in Bohdanovce nad Trnavou in Slovakia


In 2016, an Ottoman copper coin was studied by the authors in a private collection. It was reportedly found in Bohdanovce nad Trnavou (Trnava district, Slovakia). The coin was identified as the manghir struck under the Ottoman Sultan Murad III (AH 982–1003/AD 1574–1595) in Miṣr (Cairo) in AH 982/AD 1574 (in AD 1574–1595 respectively, because of the enthronement date). It is the earliest Ottoman copper issue discovered in Slovakia which was accidentally lost very likely in connection with the Ottoman raids against Hungary at the end of the 16th century. The remaining five Ottoman copper pieces found in Slovakia date back much later, to the end of the 17th century (Sulayman II, Ahmad II).
