Egypt registers Ottoman coins as Islamic artifacts

Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities on Wednesday said an old coin collection, some of them dating back to the Ottoman period, was registered as Islamic artifacts.


According to a statement, the ministry's permanent committee of Islamic and coptic antiquities registered a collection of coins which were at the General Treasury Department.


The collection consisted a variety of currencies -- gold and silver --, which included Egyptian and Ottoman coins, as well as a set of coins of Saudi Arabia's founder, King Abdulaziz al-Saud (1876-1953).


It also included gold coins of Ottoman Sultan Abdulmecid (1823-1861), Sultan Mehmed III (1566-1603), Abdulhamid II (1842-1918) as well as Egyptian gold coins of the Muhammad Ali dynasty (1769-1849). (AA)
