"A little bit of history"

 

In 1914 at the start of the first World War Britain declared a Protectorate over Egypt and deposed the Khedive, Abbas Hilmi II and had him replaced by his nephew , Hussein Kamel who was proclaimed Sultan of Egypt by the British

on the 19 December 1914.

This move was to insure the British maintained a clear route to India

 via the Suez canal.

~~~~~~

The British minted Egyptian coinage with English as well as Arabic text so as to help the occupying British troops with identification and denomination types.

The obverse of the coin bears the date AH 1333 (The accession date)

The reverse of the silver coins are dated with both the Arabic & Western date

AH 1335 / AD 1916 or AH 1335 / AD 1917

Upon Hussein Kamel's death, on 9 October 1917,

 his only son, Prince Kamal al-Din Husayn, declined the succession, and Hussein Kamel's brother

Ahmed Fuad ascended the throne as Sultan Fuad I.

Egypt was granted independence on 28 February 1922,

thereby abolishing the British Protectorate and

so establishing an independent Kingdom of Egypt.

King Fuad I was the first Egyptian king
