Currency Information on Syrian Pound - SYP – Syrian pound - £S or LS
The Syrian pound was pegged to the French franc, until 1941, when Syria was occupied by British and French forces; it was replaced with a peg to the British pound at 8.83125:1.
The Syrian pound was reissued in 2009 and new notes were printed, designed by Robert Kalina.
Coins in denominations of 1, 2, 3, 10 and 25 pounds are available, along with notes in denominations of 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 pounds.
When I was looking to retire to France a year ago I was in need of transferring money in order to pay the deposit on my retirement flat. Compare Money Transfer helped me find the best rates and the best deals – a great service if like me you are not familiar with the financial goings on of the currency markets.
