The Rumi Calendar was used on the last of the Ottoman Empire's banknotes and on the first of Turkey's coins and notes. Could it please be added? Here's a link to a Wikipedia article (which could be better) and a description from Bank Note Museum. A temporary fix has been applied to the coins (see here for discussion) but it will be easier to tackle the notes if the calendar is in the dropdown options. The conversion is AD = RC + 584, although the RC new year was in March until RC1334 (AD1918).

Hello,
I added the Rumi calendar. The coins and banknotes need to be updated.

Thanks, Xavier.
I've submitted corrections for all the coins and many of the notes but there are some notes listed as ND that I can't change. Could an admin take a look at them? They include:

and quite a few others.

Thank you! I accepted your corrections (there is no dedicated referee) and I changed the ND lines.
