Egypt 1, 5, and 10 Millieme  1954 to 1958
Egypt 1, 5, and 10 Millieme 1954 to 1958

You are right, sir or madam, the modern date on this coin makes if to low value. But the Egyptian Republic lasted only from 1953 to 1958, being replaced with a United Arab Republic and a new set of coinage. The 1953 to 1958 coins are somewhat rare and collectors seek them for their collections. This pushes prices up a little.

You can figure out the date using these eastern Arabic numerals. The coin in our picture is dated 1957, with a Hejira date (based on the life of Muhammed, who lived around 600 AD) is shown as 1376.

Some typical catalog values are shown below:
