Monnaies de Luxe (MDL). Since 1899 Turkey has issued some monnaies de luxe. These coins were intended for presentation purposes or jewellery. They are issued at a slightly lower weight than their normal counterpart denominations, but the same alloy fineness, and of larger diameter but thinner, and from more ornate dies.
