One Turkish lira (₺) can be subdivded into 100 kuruş (kr). There are six denominations of Turkish lira banknotes in frequent circulation: ₺5, ₺10, ₺20, ₺50, ₺100 and ₺200; and six coin denominations: 25 kr, 50 kr and ₺1 which are used most frequently, and 1 kr, 5 kr and 10 kr which are used less-often due to their low values.

The current series of Turkish lira banknotes in circulation are part of the 'E9' series which was introduced by the Central Bank of Turkey in 2009, with the later addition of a purple ₺5 banknotes in 2013. Banknotes from the E9 series are printed with the words 'Turkish lira' instead of 'New Turkish lira' which had featured on the previous E8 series after the currency was redenominated in 2005.

Each banknote in the E9 series features distinct designs that showcase various aspects of Turkish culture, history, and natural landmarks. For instance, the ₺5 note depicts the portrait of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk; the founder of modern Turkey, and the Independence Monument. The ₺10 note features an image of the poet Yunus Emre and verses from his poems, while the ₺20 note showcases the architect Mimar Sinan and an illustration of the Selimiye Mosque.
