Newly printed 200 Turkish lira and 10 Turkish lira banknotes will go into circulation on July 16, ahead of next week's Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice, said an official announcement.

Compared to earlier versions now in circulation, the new notes will include Governor Şahap Kavcıoğlu's and Deputy Governor Emrah Şener's signatures, the Turkish Central Bank announced on July 14.
