According to Wikipedia:
In late December 2003, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey passed a law that allowed for the removal of six zeroes from the lira, and the creation of a new currency. It was introduced on 1 January 2005, replacing the previous lira (which remained valid in circulation until the end of 2005) at a rate of 1 second lira (ISO 4217 code "TRY") = 1,000,000 first lira (ISO 4217 code "TRL"). With the revaluation of the Turkish lira, the Romanian leu (also revalued in July 2005) briefly became the world's least valued currency unit.
In the transitional period between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2008, the second lira was officially called Yeni Türk Liras (New Turkish lira). It was officially abbreviated "YTL" and subdivided into 100 new kuru (yeni kuru). With effect from 1 January 2009, the "new" was removed from the second lira, its official name becoming just "lira" again, abbreviated "TL".
