Syrian Pound overview

The Syrian pound or Syrian lira (Arabic: الليرة السورية‎ al-līra as-sūriyya; French: livre syrienne; sign: LS or £S; code: SYP) is the currency of Syria and is issued by the Central Bank of Syria. The pound is subdivided into 100 qirsh (Arabic: قرش plural: قروش, qurūsh, piastres in English or French), although coins in qirsh are no longer issued. Before 1947, the word qirsh was spelled with the initial Arabic letter غ, after which the word began with ق. Until 1958, banknotes were issued with Arabic on the obverse and French on the reverse. After 1958, English has been used on the reverses, hence the three different names for this currency. Coins used both Arabic and French until independence, then only Arabic. The standard abbreviation for the Syrian pound is SYP. On 5 December 2005, the selling rate quoted by the Commercial Bank of Syria was 48.4 SYP to the US dollar. A rate of about 50 pounds to one dollar has been usual in the early 2000s, but the exchange rate is subject to fluctuations. Since the start of the civil war in 2011, the pound's exchange rate has deteriorated significantly, falling from 47 SYP for US$1 in March 2011 to 515 SYP for US$1 in July 2017.

Многие просили чтобы я рассказала про сирийскую валюту-лиру💸💳 поэтому ловите: 💸 по курсу сегодня 1$ равен 420 сирийским лирам; то есть 100$ это 42000 лиры- только вы не обольщайтесь этим цифрам, на них мало чего купишь; чтобы вы смогли представить: 1кг чая на развес стоит примерно 5000 лир. А одна ШаУрма стоит 1000 лир; 💸 на фото у меня в руке 100 лир мелочью, это на проезд😂; 💸 приезжие считают что проживание и цены в Сирии дешевые, если брать в учёт что у приезжих в среднем ЗП по 1000$. Для местных проживание и цены дорого обходится , т.к в среднем местные ЗП здесь 200-300$ не больше (это примерно равно 15000 русских рублей), на эти деньги мало чего купишь , да и большая семья на них не проживет:( ⠀ Вот такие денежные мелочи☝ Что вам еще интересно узнать?) #money #syrianpound
