Egyptian Pound
The Egyptian pound (Arabic: جنيه مصرى‎ Genēh Maṣri) (sign: E£ or ج.م; code: EGP) is the currency of Egypt. It is divided into 100 piastre, or qirsh (قرش [ʔeɾʃ]; plural قروش ; Turkish: Kuruş), or 1,000 milliemes (Arabic: مليم‎ ; French: Millième).

The ISO 4217 code is EGP. Locally, the abbreviation LE or L.E., which stands for livre égyptienne (French for Egyptian pound) is frequently used. E£ and £E are rarely used. The name Gineih (Genēh / Geni) is derived from the Guinea coin, which had almost the same value of 100 piastres at the end of the 19th century.
