Egyptian banknotes feature both English and Hindu-Arabic
numeral on one side and Arabic texts with Eastern Arabic numbers on the other.
Egyptians have different slang nicknames for various denominations of the pound.
Baku, or pack, for 1000 EGP notes
Arnab, or rabbit, for 1,000,000 EGP banknotes
Feel, or elephant, for 1,000,000,000 EGP bills
In 2006, Egypt introduced 50 piastre and 1 pound coins,
showing the faces of Cleopatra and Tutankhamun, and
phased out bank notes for those denominations.
