Does anyone know if I can exchange Lira coins in Tbilisi?

I'm usually careful to not return home with coins since nobody will take them on exchange, but ended up with a bunch of Lira. I would be glad to part with them on our upcoming trip to Tbilisi if it's possible.

  • I'm going to Tbilisi next week, so will be able to check it there. I'll try to get some info from my contacts there in the mean time. – Aleks G Jun 12 '14 at 14:15
  • @AleksG Did you find out by any chance? – Rae Jun 25 '14 at 13:21

I'm in Tbilisi for the past few days, so could check it here. I asked around in a few currency exchange places - and none of them accept foreign coins, lira or otherwise. One of the places suggested that TBC bank branches may be able to exchange coins, however I didn't manage to get to a bank.

My advice would be to take the lira coins with you and head straight for a bank branch. While the exchange rate isn't as favourable as in independent exchange centres, at least you may stand a better chance.

  • Looks like I'll be going to Turkey after Ramadan, so might as well wait. Thanks for replying and hope this reminds people to spend their coins before leaving. – Rae Jun 30 '14 at 12:44
