The Egyptian Pound has the ISO code EGP. One pound is divided into 100 piastre. Locally the abbreviation LE is used, standing for Livre Egyptienne (French for Egyptian Pound) and surprisingly E£ or £E are rarely used.

The import/export of cash is limited to EGP 5000 for non-residents although there is no restriction on the import/export of foreign currency.
