Hey! I am looking for 1600s and 1700s silver coins (No ones from German states, except over 10gram ones) that cost under 50€, and gold coins from the same times that cost under 300€.

Ottoman gold from the 1700s isn't so precious (Some coins are often sold for under 200€). I don't know a lot about other gold coins/silver coins, up!

For gold, you’ll be looking at India, Iran, Spanish 1/2 and 1 escudos, some
Portugese, the occasional Venetian zecchino, southeast Asian kupangs. Thats what can think of off the top of my head. I can provide examples of any of these if you
want.

You’ve already mentioned Turkey, which you can build a substantial collection of for 300 or less.

edit, smaller german states issues 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32 ducats, goldguldens, japanese

You can buy a lot of silver Polish or Lithuanian coins of Sigismund III Vasa https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pologne-lituanie-5.html#c_pologne-lituanie4596
Silver solids or poltoraks are cheaper than 3- 5 euros each in many cases and it's possible to get large silver coins– 6 groats https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces35050.html or orts https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces69041.html by reasonable price also.

​the local numismatic shop is selling large Polish/Lithuanian 1600s coins (larger ones too) for 5-20€.



I have 80€. Where can I buy a Ottoman gold coin for that price that is over 1.5 gram in weight?

​That 80€ was first going to be spent on a 1/2 Crown gun money, then on a Thai bullet coin, and then on a Bolivian pattern...

All of these were "cancelled" and now a bit under half of it was used to buy a 1/4 Zeri Mahbub ( https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces98939.html# ) and the other half will be spent on possibly coin/stamp lots that I will buy from local flea markets.
