Treasury Notes are sold with discount, and its return payable at the end of maturity is known beforehand. State Bonds may be with discount or coupon payments. Coupon Bonds may be issued with fixed or variable coupon interests. If you hold both of these notes until the end of maturity, payment of the principal sum and interests to you is under guarantee of the Treasury of the Republic of Turkey.

Eurobond coupon payment frequency may be 6 or 12 months, and in general, USD Eurobonds are issued with semi-annual coupon payments, while EURO Eurobonds are issued with annual coupon payments.
