Turkish media focused on inventor of Armenian currency symbolMarch 06, 2012 | 00:04

The similarity between currency symbols of the Armenian dram and the Turkish lira was of great resonance in the Turkish society, as a result, Turkish media outlets turned inventor of the Armenian dram Karen Kamendaryan for comments.

According to Kamendaryan, the Armenian symbol was invented back in 1995, depicting Armenian letter ‘Դ’ (‘D’) with two lines crossing over it, Turkish Sabah reports. In the meantime, there is no similarity between the Armenian and the Turkish symbols, besides the two lines. As the Turkish one depicts the letter ‘L’ with two lines crossing over it.

As Armenian News-NEWS.am has earlier informed Central Bank of Turkey had presented solemnly the new symbol of the Turkish lira, which made a fuss among press and social networks users. 

“If the symbol is turned upside down it resembles Armenian dram,” Turkish media outlets claimed.
