Lebanon, coin catalog, price

Country: Lebanon, Lebanese Republic
Capital: Beirut
Currency: Lebanese pound
Numeric code: 422
Letter code: LBP
On the Eastern shores of the Mediterranean sea is tiny (about ten and a half thousand square kilometres), the state of the Lebanese Republic. The capital and largest city of the Republic – Beirut. Living in the country for more than four million people. Neighbors of Lebanon, only two – Israel and Syria. Since 1943, the country celebrates Independence Day.
Currency is the Lebanese pound. Here it is called the livre or Lira. Theoretically a pound of Lebanon consists of one hundred piastres (Kirsch). But small detail here long forgotten. In the catalogue of the coins of Lebanon have a right to exist only 50, 100, 250 and 500 pounds. All coins are standard – round, only the 50 pound different from her sisters – it is octagonal.
First pounds Lebanon minted in 1924. It was 2 and 5 Girsh. In 1945, to coin a number of added Hirsch: ½, 1 and 2½ . Soon they were renamed: Hirsch became the Kirsch. From 1952 to 1986 in the back country there were coins of 1, 2½, 5, 10, 2, 50 piastres (Kirsch) and 1 pound (Lira). But by 1996, they all disappeared. They were replaced by a new series of higher denominations, which is used to this day.
The value of the coins of Lebanon, withdrawn from circulation and became history, higher than their existing counterparts. But the price of Lebanese coins is not excessive. It predisposes to buy coins Lebanon and refill with new samples to my collection.
