Medjidie

MEDJIDIE, or MEJIDIE, the name of a military and knightly order of the Turkish Empire, and also of a silver Turkish coin, worth twenty piastres. The coin was first struck in 1844, and the order was instituted in 1852 by the sultan Abd-ul-Mejid, whose name was therefore given to them. (See KNIGHTHOOD AND CHIVALRY: Orders of Knighthood.)
