The Turkish Lira continued to plummet to record lows on Sept. 21, starting the day off at 7.59 liras on the dollar, 8.98 liras per euro and 9.81 liras per pound sterlin.

The lira’s crash against G10 currencies has dipped to new lows in the past two weeks, but the currency’s been weakening for over a month, as Ankara’s interventions have proven futile.

Meanwhile, a gram of gold sells for 477 liras in Istanbul, while a quarter gold coin sells for 779 liras.

Turkish Finance Minister Berat Albayrak will discuss the record low lira, a recent Moody’s downgrade and prospects for economic recovery from the pandemic fallout in an interview on broadcaster NTV on Sept. 21.
