Lebanese Pound Wiki
The Lebanese pound (Arabic: ليرة لبنانية lira libnaniyya; French: livre libanaise; sign: ل.ل., ISO 4217: LBP) is the currency of Lebanon. It used to be divided into 100 piastres (or qirsh) but high inflation in the Lebanese Civil War has eliminated the need for subdivisions. The plural form of lira, as used on the currency, is either lirat (ليرات) or the same, whilst there were four forms for qirsh: the dual qirshān (قرشان), the plural qurush (قروش) used with numbers 3–10, the accusative singular qirshan (قرشا) used with 11–99, or the genitive singular qirshi (قرش) used with multiples of 100. In both cases, the number determines which plural form is used. Before the Second World War, the Arabic spelling of the subdivision was غرش (girsh). All of Lebanon's coins and banknotes are bilingual in Arabic and French. Since December 1997 the rate of the pound has been fixed at 1507.5 pounds per US$. Since August 2019, the pressure on the peg has started, creating a parallel rate in the market which reached a 40% devaluation by November 26 (www.lebaneselira.net tracks the evolution), with every dollar being exchanged at 2100LL. The two-rate market is a textbook case of weakening Central Bank reserves that are not able to defend the official exchange rate. Continuous financial pressures driven by unsustainable sovereign debt, high trade deficit and deposit outflows due to loss of confidence are threatening the peg for the first time since 1992.
