From 1 Jan 2009 we will drop the "Yeni" and just have TL again.

 

We will have new banknotes.  Their design was announed today.

 

I wanted to put in a link but couldn´t see how to do it, sorry.  Pictures here:

Is there any particular reason for the change?

Do you know of any transition period? I always keep around 200ytl with me, for the next time I go there, so that I will immediately have some cash at hand in case something happens. I suppose there will be a transition period where you can use both or something right? Im not sure when Im going next, hopefully before new year but nothings sure yet

 

The banknotes look fine, I recall it was only Atatürk and some places in TR represented on it. Seems they have put other significant persons as well?

That´s a good question-when will the old notes cease to be legal tender? I think the old old ones(when they were in millions) were ok for about a year-is that right?

 Yes, it was a whole year last time.  I am not sure about it this time, though...  will check the central bank´s website and get back to you...!

 Quick run down of the people:

He lived 1913-1993, and was at Harvard.


10 TL: ORD. PROF. DR. ARF: One of the most important mathematicians


He lived 1910-1997, and is the originator of the Arf theory which is all about the Arf constant.

20 TL: MÝMAR KEMALEDDÝN: A leader of the National Architectural Trend

 

He lived 1870-1927, and started the first architects association in 1908.  One of his buildings was the Rectors building in Gazi Üniversitesi.


50 TL FATMA ALÝYE HANIM: Hurrah! A woman!  The first female Turkish philosopher


She lived 1862-1936, and was one of the firsr female literists and philosophers. Most of her writings were about the place of women in society, the family and marriage, education of women, and she was a defender of women´s rights.  With her sister she founded the Female Protection Society.


100 TL ITRÝ: The founder of Classical Turkish Music

 HEre is what they say:

 

5 - Halen kullandýðýmýz banknot ve madeni paralar ne zamana kadar geçerli olacak?
Halen kullandýðýmýz Yeni Türk Lirasý banknot ve madeni paralar 2009 yýlýnýn sonuna kadar geçerlidir. 2009 yýlý boyunca Yeni Türk Lirasý ve Türk Lirasý banknot ve madeni paralar birlikte tedavül edecektir.

The YTL notes and coins currently in use will be valid until the end of 2009.  Throughout 2009 both the YTL and TL notes and coins will be in circulation.
