Imagine carrying several large jewels around with you, the next time you head in to town to do a bit of shopping. It would probably be pretty tiring, and the thought of receiving 20 rupees worth of change in just green rupees would be your worst nightmare.

With that said, wouldn’t it be ideal for the citizens of Hyrule, if the Kingdom scrapped the traditional rupee for a more convenient, pocket sized paper rupee?

For the sake of Hyrule’s worn out citizens, deviant artist G33k1nd159153  has come up with their own interpretation on what 4 different paper rupees may look like. Each rupee is worth a different traditional value and contains 4 iconic members of importance, to the Kingdom of Hyrule.

To see the 4 paper rupees, hit the jump.

In order of value from the highest to the lowest.

I somewhat find it funny, that the Hero who saved Hyrule on numerous occasions lands himself on the lowest denomination currency.

Also in the light of CD-i month, here are some more humorous fan made paper currencies, this time for the CD-i universe.
