I have acquired this complete set of monetary notes from Sri Lanka. They are beautiful crisp uncircuated notes dated 1979, seven years after the Ceylonese gained autonomy from the British Commonwealth and gained their own Parliament and heads of State. In 1972 when the island became completely self-governing, the name was changed to Sri Lanka. Shown is my set of Rupee bills.
1 Rupee = 100 cents.
