New Plastic EGP 20 Banknote Will Enter Circulation Before Eid al-Adha

The Central Bank of Egypt will soon introduce a new plastic EGP 20 banknote before the start of the Eid al-Adha holidays.


The introduction of the plastic EGP 20 bill comes months after the Central Bank of Egypt released Egypt’s first plastic banknote, worth EGP 10, in 2022.


With the establishment of the MENA region’s largest plastic printing house in the New Administrative Capital, these plastic notes have been created to offer a durable alternative to paper, and to incorporate technology to combat counterfeiting efforts.
