Banknotes of Turkey - Paper Money from Turkey
The Banknotes of the First Emission Group - Türk Lirası
The Committee chaired by Abdulhalik Renda, the Minister of Finance, decided to issue First Emission Group banknotes in the denominations 1, 5, 10, 50, 100, 500 and 1,000 Turkish Lira at the end of a nine month-study. The production of new banknotes was commissioned to an English printing firm, Thomas De La Rue, and these banknotes were printed by intaglio technique on papers with watermarks.
As banknotes of this emission group were printed before the Alphabet Revolution on 1 November 1928, their main text was in Arabic letters, whereas the denominations were in French.
Being as the first banknotes of the Turkish Republic, First Emission Group banknotes (E1) were put into circulation on 5 December 1927. Also, Evrak-ı Nakdiye were withdrawn from circulation on 4 December 1927, and lost their value as legal tender on 4 September 1928.
