for the record, Turkish Lira has a symbol now…

The symbol, revealed in a ceremony by Turkey?s Central Bank chief Erdem Basci, is a double-crossed ?t?? shaped like an anchor.For me it is the winning loser from the final 7 losers. All morning I practiced writing by hand. I am very graphically inclined and with a steady hand, I could not maintain any consistency. It is still ‘greek’ to me like their suggestion:ALTGR+T

Market Rules for the Turkish Lira Symbol

from Mavi Boncuk by M.A.M

Does anyone know if this symbol goes in front or at the end like old Turkish lira (such as 500 TL.)  Turkish Central Bank website uses it in the front for example, similar to other currencies.

  1. The symbol will be used in front of the numbers. I saw some merchants using the symbol on their price tags at my local fruit market but they all put it after the numbers.
