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.

I actually had a thought to but him on it instead but I wasn't really sure where I would put Link then.

Well there is always a $5.

I really like how it looks though. I would love to have currency like this and I probably would save it better than I do now :)

It's a really nice design! I even like that you put the rupee shapes around the numbers in the corners! :D

I'm glad someone mentioned that. I felt pretty clever for that and was really happy with how the shape itself turned out.

why would it be a federal reserve note? That makes no sense!

I think in an era where Hyrule would have actual paper money a federation or federation ofl monarchies would be a likely government system in place.

Why not just have it controlled by the treasury?

Federal Reserve Note sounded the best to me and I just liked to look of it.
I mostly based the layout on US bills since I have them much more readily available.
It's just the way it turned out and I didn't see any reason to change it.
In the end I don't really feel it takes away any more believability than paper money in LOZ does already.
