From the end of the sixteenth century various administrative, military, industrial, commercial, financial and social developments which occurred within the boundaries of the Ottoman State and throughout the world were instrumental in exacerbating the economic problems of the Ottoman Empire. This volume covers the reigns of Sultans Mustafa I, Osman II, Murad IV, Ibrahim and Mehmed IV. This volume includes the details of 28 coins of Sultan Suleyman II, 18 coins of Sultan Ahmed II, 104 coins of Sultan Mustafa II, 346 coins of Sultan Ahmed III and 335 coins of Sultan Mahmud I. Additionally the book provides the local history of nearly 50 provinces which issued coins during these reigns and examines the characteristics of the coins minted in these provinces. An inventory of the coins belonging to the Sultans is provided at the end of the book.
