TRY

ISO 4217 code for the Turkish lira. It traces its history back to the Ottoman Empire. Until 2005, the lira was subject to high (though not crippling) inflation. The "new lira," which revalued the currency, was introduced in 2005. It 2009, the word "new" was removed from coins, and it became the lira again.
