The front features Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, as do all banknotes, and the back features Aydın Sayılı, a historian of science. To add to the science angle the back of the banknote also includes a depiction of an atom and DNA. Two of the key phrases and their meanings are Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Merkez Bankası, the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey, and Beş Türk Lirası, Five Turkish Liras.
