saThe 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. 

The 500 Seychellois rupees note front design features a Seychelles kestrell over a mountain landscape with Hornes pandanus, coco de mer palms, and a sketch of the Seychelles vinegar fly. The National Coat of Arms, two stamps with a stylized green sea turtle, and stylized sketches of the coco de mer palm fruit. The reverse of the note illustrates a Seychelles Tiger Chameleon (two: illustrated and hologram design) on a wild bilimbi tree, a Seychelles scop owl, and a sketch of the Seychelles vinegar fly. Both sides of the note present the lettering in the Haitian Creole, French and English languages. This note is part of the 2016 series, and its color is brown.
