Der arabische Name ist arabischجنيه‎ dschunaih, DMG ǧunayh, auf Ägyptisch-Arabisch ginēh ausgesprochen). Die gebräuchliche Abkürzung des ägyptischen Pfunds ist LE, nach dem französischen Namen livre égyptienne


Banknoten gibt es in Stückelungen zu 5, 10, 25 und 50 Piaster, sowie zu 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 und 200 Pfund. Kursmünzen gibt es in Stückelungen zu 1, 2, 5 und 10 Millièmes, zu 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 und 25 Piaster, sowie seit neuestem auch zu 50 Piaster und 1 Pfund. Die 1 Pfund Münze erinnert dabei vom Aufbau an die 1 Euro Münze.

Da in Ägypten Geld entweder als einfach zusammengefaltetes Bündel, ggf. mit Geldklammer, oder in Portemonnaies ohne Münzfach transportiert wird, spielen im alltäglichen Zahlungsverkehr Münzen keine Rolle, es kursieren praktisch nur Banknoten. Des Weiteren herrscht eine Knappheit an Banknoten der kleineren Werte unter 20 Pfund. Millièmes sind nicht mehr im Umlauf.
