What is the national currency of Egypt?

dirham
dinar
the pound
rial
When the British first got involved in Egypt in the nine­teenth century, Egypt was using a monetary unit known as the piastre, or Qirsh. Since 100 piastres was roughly between the value of one pound sterling and one Guinea, a new unit, called the pound in English and the ginaih in Arabic, was created equal to one hundred pi­as­tres. The Egyptian pound, however, has never been exactly equal in value to the pound ster­ling.
