Abstract

In 2006, a hoard comprising silver Turkish coins (akçe) from the 15th – early 16th c. was found in agricultural work in the area of Dushevo village, Sevlievo region. The coins were scattered by their discoverers, so their original number in the hoard could not be ascertained. Most likely it was several hundred. Only 8 pieces of these akçe entered the numismatic collection of the National Museum of History – Sofia. One of them belongs to Sultan Mehmed I (1413 – 1421); 4 coins – to Sultan Mahmud II (1451 – 1481) and 3 coins – to Sultan Bayezid II (1481 – 1512). Obviously the hoard was concealed at a certain point under the reign of Sultan Bayezid II.
