Türkiye / Turkey new 5 Lira Coin
January 15, 2024, 01:15:13 AM
Hi guys, long time no see, sorry for being a stranger for some time.
I have been working on a personal site where I intend to compile info on Turkish coins.
So I am sort of back. I will try to make more time for the forum.

I have an update for those interested;  The Turkish Mint released a new 5 Lira bimetallic coin into circulation.
This is the first new circulation denomination since 2009, and the sixth type of 5 TL coins.

2023 was the centenary of the republic and this coin was announced as a commemorative circulation coin.
It is announced that 100.000.000 pieces will be struck.



The obverse bears an effigy of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk as Commander-in-Chief uniform.
The portrait is made after this photo from 1922.

The reverse bearing the “Türkiye Century” logo beside the denomination 5, around them is an eight-pointed “Seljuki Star” motiff, and the Turkish Lira symbol “₺” as well as the initials "TC" are used as security elements by the sides of the repeating star motif.

I have this clip for showing the design under different light.

(for those confused by the title; since early 2022, the Turkish government requests that the UN and other international organizations to use Türkiye officially in English (and not Turkey)

*edited to update the link for the original photo

Beautiful coin from Turkiye. Glad to see you back Renal. I hope you and your family have been keeping well. I have done some trades with another friend in Turkiye, so my collection has grown since we last traded. I look forward to seeing your new site. I'm going to need that new coin now.

Glad you liked it Steve.

The website is online now. and since you asked; it feels less of a shameless self-promotion to share the link :D

The English pages are a subset of the whole content as I am translating the originals gradually, as I can find the time for it.

Thanks for sharing the link. Very interesting and informative site.
I hope the English pages will grow soon because I don't speak Turkish.
I am not a collector of world coins like Steve. Yet, I do have a type set of the New Lira coins. I also have some of the circulation commemoratives. But quite a few are still missing. And of course, I need to add the 5 Lira coin to the set.


By the way, I have a question about the current 200 Lira banknote. Perhaps, you might be able to answer it.
I see on numista that the number of printed 200 Lira banknotes for Series I (2009) and Series II (2013) is given on numista. Any idea where numista got these figures? Are these figures accurate?
Printing figures for the other series are not given.
I searched the website of the Turkish Central Bank. You can find the number of banknotes in circulation there. But not the number of printed banknotes. At least, I wasn't able to find them.
So, I am wondering here the information about the printed number comes from.

Thank you for the link Renal. I have saved it, but it's getting late here, so I'll check it out tomorrow.

Cheers
