Özet

In the 19th century, counterfeiting in the Ottoman markets came to be a much more important problem than in previous centuries. In this period, domestic and foreign counterfeiters launched counterfeit Ottoman money, which they produced both domestically and abroad, to the market intensively. For this reason, the struggle against counterfeiting and counterfeit money has become much more important than ever. The struggle was carried out, in particular, by an organization that was pioneered by the ministries of the interior, finance and security but also involving other administrative units.
