The pound is subdivided into 100 piastres (قرش, plural: قروش, qurūsh in Arabic), although piastre coins are no longer issued. The ISO code for the Syrian pound is SYP. Before 1947, the Arabic inscription of 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. Since 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. With currencyconverts.com you can convert Syrian Pound (LS) to any other foreign currency.
