One Rupee Hylian Banknote by G33k1nd159153 One Rupee Hylian Banknote by G33k1nd159153
A one rupee banknote that would appear in a more modern Hyrule. I figured if your land/country is constantly saved by
heroes that have the same taste in clothes, you might think of putting a representation of that kind of person on you money.

I made this in Photoshop from scratch with the exception of the portrait of Link and the signature of Shigeru Miyamoto.

Take a look at my:
5 Rupee Banknote:[link]
20 Rupee Banknote:[link]
50 Rupee Banknote: [link]

Edit 2/16/13: I have changed the text "Federal Reserve Note" to "Royal Banknote" since it seemed more logical

I thought of doing it at first but My illustration skills aren't greatest. The time investment wouldn't balance out to something I'd feel comfortable putting out for the world to see. I feel they'd display quite nicely as is though. It's not like you can show both sides of a piece of paper without printing two copies anyhow.

This is awesome. I just saw it on Kotaku. I actually really like the decision for Link to be on the 1 rupee note. He usually wears green and the 1 rupee is green. Also Washington is on the US $1 bill and he's one of the most beloved Presidents so I don't get why people think the worth on the currency is reflective of the person on it.

SO you just help me get up for work on time. I had to jump up to check that out when I read your comment in bed. I'm amazed that I'm on such a major site. In regards to Washington: Yes. I hadn't thought of that to be honest but that is very true and what I'll be telling people from now one.

SO cool!! Except why is Link only one rupee and not something like ten. Tingel would be perfect for one rupee.
