That symbol is the Turkish New Lira. Apparently it's been added to Unicode last year. Most fonts don't see it and indeed Arial Unicode MS displays a square.

But if you use this new font, Rupakara, it supports the symbol. Note that it doesn't support accented letters as in à, è, ü. The alternative would be either to use a small image, or to try Unicode but this second option might not work. I was trying earlier and nothing worked.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\setmainfont{Rupakara}

\begin{document}\Huge

₺ 

\end{document}

The symbol you see is not the same as the quotes ", so if you need to type it multiple times, you could set a \newcommand in your preamble as in

\newcommand{\CommandNameHere}{₺}
