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. After the British Government decision, The Governor of the Colony of the Seychelles issued emergency notes in denominations of 50 cents, 1 5, and 10 rupees. In 1918, The Governor introduced a new series in denominations of 50 cents and 1 rupee, followed by 5, 10, 50 rupees in 1928, 20 and 100 rupees in 1968. After independence from the British Empire in 1976, the Seychelles Monetary Authority was designated as the official issuing entity of paper money and issued banknotes in denominations of 10, 25, 50, and 100 rupees. This series replaced all colonial banknotes issued before independence. In 1998, a new series of banknotes was introduced, adding the 500 rupees note.
