Are these some kind of metallic souvenir, denominated in lira?

Possibly so. :)  Currently the 1 lira denomination is a coin, not a note. And in the list of the central bank's press releases, there is nothing about such an issue. Does not mean much of course, especially since Erdoğan will now have even more control also with regard to the central bank ...

Seems there is that 1 lira "something" after all. But it is a coin rather than a note. :)
