The Lebanese Pound was introduced in 1925 after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The French created a separate currency system for both Syria and Lebanon. The traditional Lebanese pound consists of images of historical sites and monuments and the old design follows the traditional French banknote design. Modern Lebanese banknotes follow a more abstract artistic design. They don’t feature traditional images of people on the front. Instead there is large Arabic text. The reverse features an image of cedar trees, plants and other symbols like a soldier with a Lebanese flag to symbolize 70 years since the forming of the Lebanese army. Due to inflation the current series of Lebanese Pound banknotes in use are 1000, 5000, 10000, 20000, 50000, 100000 Pounds. Some of the current banknotes are made of polymer because of the added security it gives to the banknote.
