The rupee is the official currency of the Seychelles since 1914 when the British Legislative Council gave the endorsement to establish a Board of Currency Commissioners. In 1939, the first coins were issued by The Governor of the Colony of Seychelles in denominations of 10 and 25 cents, ½ and 1 rupee., nowadays, are currently circulating denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 cents, and 1, 5 and 10 rupees.

The 1 Seychellois rupee coin front design features the National Coat of Arms (consists of a shield with an Aldraba giant tortoise on a small island with a coco de mer palm tree) background a blue sea with two islands and a sailboat. Above the shield are a silver helmet and a white-tailed tropicbird. The shield is supported by two sailfish, under the Seychelles motto: “Finis Coronat Opus” (The end crowns the work”), and the issue date. The reverse coin design illustrates the King of the Seychelles butterfly on a flower, and a visual effect with the initials of the Central Bank of Seychelles (CBS), which change to the denomination (One) when turning the coin from side to side, on a background with oblique lines representing the flag of Seychelles. This coin is part of the 2016 series, its rim is milled, and its color is silver.
