Qrim, Akce
« on: July 07, 2019, 02:49:03 PM »
This took some finding for a reasonably modern coin -
Dated AH1191 year 4,  2.5g presumably an Akce, although Krause calls it a Polushka which I don't really understand.  There is one listed on Zeno, but I didn't find another besides this.

Polushka was just the Russian name for the akche. My 6th edition 1700-1800 gives both denominations.

The only one I have of this series is 15 akche/ kyrmis, a massive piece presumably equivalent to the Russian 5 kopek. For some reason Krause gives a weight of 16 gm for all three versions of this, though mine weighs just over 61 gm: perhaps Krause have just got the digits transposed.

In the Crimea at the time of the Girey there were no names Polushka and Denga.
These names appeared much later.
Most likely it is Onlyk.
Two Onlyk = Beshlyk

If I read the table rightly my piece is as I thought a kyrmis, equivalent to 5 kopeks, but is actually a 10 akche piece not 15?

It is 61.15 gm, 46 mm

10 akche
The weight of these coins has a large variation (42-64 gr).
Your coin is at the top limit.
