LBP (Lebanese Pound)

LBP (Lebanese Pound)
The currency abbreviation or currency symbol for the Lebanese pound (LBP), the currency for Lebanon. The LBP is made up of 100 qirsh or piastres. This currency is also called lira in Arabic or livre in French, and all notes and coins are printed and stamped in both Arabic and French.

The Lebanese pound was first seen in coin form in 1924 with paper currency following a year later. The LBP officially separated from Syrian currency in 1939 and became linked with the British pound after France was conquered by Germany in 1941. The Lebanese pound was re-linked with the franc after the war, but separated again in 1949.
