The Syrian Pound (SYP) is the official currency of Syria. It is the legal tender used for all transactions within the country.


The Syrian Pound has a long history dating back to the early 20th century. Before Syria gained independence from France in 1946, the currency used was the Syrian pound issued by the Banque de Syrie (Bank of Syria). After independence, the Central Bank of Syria took over the issuance of the currency.

Coins and Banknotes:

The Syrian Pound is divided into 100 piastres. Coins and banknotes are issued in various denominations.


Commonly used coins are 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 piastres. There are also smaller denominations like 1, 2, and 5 piastres, but they are less commonly circulated.


The most commonly used banknotes are 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 Syrian Pounds. Banknotes of higher denominations are also available but may not be as frequently used.
