The history of the Kurush dates back almost as far as the founding of the Ottoman Empire. The first Kurush denominations were issued in 1688 as large silver pieces designed to reflect the size and metal content of thalers issued in Europe. In 1844, a period of sustained debasement of Ottoman currency led to the introduction of the gold lira.
Those gold lira coins were 100 Kurush. Gold 100 Kurush coins would continue to be issued by the Ottoman Empire up through World War I. Following the defeat of the Central Powers and the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the modern Republic of Turkey that was formed on the foundations of Ottoman lands continued to issue 100 Kurush gold coins.
For the obverse of 100 Kurush Gold Turkey Coins, a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk features on the coins. This left-profile relief shows the first President of Turkey with inscriptions around his portrait.
On the reverse field of 100 Kurush Gold Coins is a simple set of images. The nation of issue and date mark feature inside of a wreath. Please keep in mind that this description is for example purposes only and may not be an exact match for the coin you receive based on date marks and availability.
