Description

The Sri Lankan rupee is the official currency of Sri Lanka. The official currency symbol: ₨, රු, ரூ. In 1836, the Indian rupee was adopted as Ceylon’s official coin, and the country reverted to the Indian currency zone. Along with the rupee, pound-denominated treasury notes continued to circulate after 1836. Treasury notes were withdrawn in 1856, and the Bank of Ceylon was the first private bank to print banknotes on the island. In 1869, the Indian rupee was formally established as unlimited legal money. In the following years, the rupee was decimalized, and as a result, the rupee of 100 cents replaced British currency as Ceylon’s money of account and sole legal tender.

Between 1885 and 1919, the Government of Ceylon introduced the first banknotes in denominations of ₨ 1, ₨ 2, ₨ 5, ₨ 10, ₨ 50, ₨ 100 and ₨ 1,000. Different issues of banknotes had been introduced until 1977, when the Central Bank of Sri Lanka took over the production of banknotes and introduced banknotes in denominations of ₨ 20, ₨ 500 and ₨ 1,000. The ₨ 200 banknote was introduced in 1998.

The 100 Sri Lankan rupees note front design presents a view of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant Project, located in Puttalam, followed by the Laxapana waterfall (Hatton region) with the lines that transmit the hydro-power generated by the waterfall; a Sri Lankan Orange Billed Babbler and Autumn Leaf butterfly. The design is completed with the gold lion, which is part of the national emblem and logo of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.

The reverse of the note illustrates a traditional Bharatanatyam Dancer followed by a Mridangam Drummer, the Naga (seven-headed cobra) guard-stone, and the Dvithva Liya Vela (stylized floral motif). The lettering of the note is presented in the Sinhala and English languages.  This note is part of the 2010 – 2017 series, and its color is orange and yellow.
