History of Egyptian Pound

The Egyptian Pound (EGP) was first introduced in 1834 replacing the Egyptian Piastre as the chief unit of the currency. However, the Egyptian piastre continued to circulate as 1/100th of the EGP. In 1916, piastre was further subdivided into 1/10th named as milliemes. 

This way, one Egyptian pound constitutes 100 Egyptianegyptian piastres and one Egyptian piastre is made up of 10 Egyptian Milliemes. Initially, the Egyptian currency system was functioning as a fixed rate of exchange based on gold standards. Between 1885 to 1914, the value of one Egyptian pound was equivalent to 7.4375 grams of pure gold. Egyptian

At the time of the First World War (1914), the Egyptian pound was pegged to British Pound (GBP) until 1962 when it was pegged to the US dollar (USD). The value of the Egyptian pound was fixed as per managed float policy but was depreciated from time to time. However, the Central Bank of Egypt has ended the managed float regime only in 2016 to allow the Egyptian pound to float freely in the currency exchange market.
