COIN LIRASI — WHERE & WHEN (coins catalog: by names & emitents)
  1. REPUBLIC OF TURKEY (2009-...): lirasi = 100 kuruş

LIRASI (Turkish "Türk lirası") as coin name.
In fact, the modern Turkish currency and the corresponding coin are called Turkish lira.
This is how the name of the denomination was indicated on the coins until 2005, when a temporary denomination was introduced — yeni lirasi ("new lira": the name of the coin began to be displayed in the Turkish format).
However, since 2009, coins with a new denomination — lirasi — have been minted.
Although, in fact, it is a type of lira, I consider it necessary to highlight this denomination separately.
