On 8 April 2013, Türkiye Cümhuriyet Merkez Bankası (Central Bank of Turkey) issued a new 5-lira note that is purple, because the exisiting tan note (P222) was too close in color to the brown 50-lira note (P225).
In addition to the new color of the 5-lira note, the bank also changed the Deputry Governor signatures on the following notes (all the new notes have Governor Erdem Başçı’s signature, seen above at left):
· TL 200 banknotes: Mehmet Yörükoğlu
· TL 50 banknotes: Turalay Kenç,
· TL 5 banknotes: Mehmet Yörükoğlu
