January 1, 2005 marked
the introduction of the New
Turkish Lira (Yeni Türk
Lirasi, YTL), with six less zeros
than the old
Turkish Lira (TL) currency.
On January 1, 2009, these 2005-series
notes were replaced with 2009-series Turkish
Lira (TL) notes. More...
Though the examples below are not
actual size, you can see what 2005-series
"New Turkish Lira" (YTL) bills/notes
look like. (Örnektir Geçmez means "Specimen—Not
Negotiable." This is not printed
on the real bills/notes, of course.)
Do not accept these YTL notes!
Accept only the 2009-series
Turkish Lira notes!
