    Hi,
    Chronic inflation from the late 1970s saw the Turkish Lira gradually depreciate against other major currencies.
    1933 — 1 US Dollar = 2 Turkish Lira.
    1966 — 1 US Dollar = 9 Turkish Lira.
    1980 — 1 US Dollar = 90 Turkish Lira.
    1988 — 1 US Dollar = 1,300 Turkish Lira.
    1995 — 1 US Dollar = 45,000 Turkish Lira.
    2001 — 1 US Dollar = 1,650,000 Turkish Lira.

    The Turkish Lira has since slid in value to such an extent that one original gold lira coin can be sold for approximately 120,000,000 Turkish Lira today.

    In the last few years the Turkish Lira has stabilised and even risen against the US Dollar and the Euro. As of October 2004, it trades at about 1,480,000 lira to 1 US dollar, and about 1,850,000 lira per 1 euro.

    A portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk appears on all Turkish banknotes and coins. Reverse designs of banknotes vary. Present denominations include:

    Banknotes:



    500,000 Lira — purple — Canakkale Dardanelles ( Anzac) Campaign Memorial

    1,000,000 Lira — pink and blue — GAP Project Dam in Southeastern Turkey

    5,000,000 Lira — brown — Ataturk Mausoleum in Ankara.

    10,000,000 Lira — red — Cartographer Piri Reis' map and ship.

    20,000,000 Lira — green — Ruins of Ephesus.

    Coins:

    50,000 Lira

    100,000 Lira

    250,000 Lira

    As from 1 January 2005 the Turkish unit will be revalued at a rate of 1,000,000 Lira for 1 New Turkish Lira (YTL — "Yeni Turk Lirasi"). The New Lira will be divided into 100 New Kurus, and issued in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 YTL notes, and 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 kurus and 1 YTL coins.
