When introduced to Sudan in 2007 the second Sudanese Pound replaced the Dinar with an exchange rate of 1:100. The introduction of the new currency marked the end of the 21 year civil war. The banknotes come in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Pounds. The coins are available in 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Piastres and 1 Pound. 100 Piastres is worth 1 Pound.
Both Arabic and English appear on Sudanese Pound banknotes and coins. From 1992 – 2007 the Pound was replaced with the Dinar (SDD) at a rate of 1 Dinar = 10 Pounds.
Sudan used to be the largest country in Africa until independence in 2011 when South Sedan was created. The first Pound to be circulated in Sudan was the Egyptian Pound. When Anglo-Egyptian rule ceased, and Sudan became independent, the new administration created the Sudanese Pound which replace the old Egyptian Pound on a par.
