al-Salih Isma'il (الملك الصالح عماد الدين إسماعيل بن الملك الناصر محمد بن قلاوون), was the Bahri Mamluk sultan of Egypt between June 1342 and August 1345. He was the fourth son of al-Nasir Muhammad to succeed the latter as sultan. His reign saw a level of political stability return to the sultanate. Under his orders or those close to him, his two predecessors and brothers, al-Ashraf Kujuk and al-Nasir Ahmad, were killed. He was succeeded by another brother, al-Kamil Sha'ban.

Coin collecting has a curious name. It is also called the "Hobby of Kings".
