The Rupee is the currency of Sri Lanka, divided into 100 cents. It is issued by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. The abbreviation is generally Rs., but SLRs. is occasionally used to distinguish it from other currencies also called rupee.
Banknotes were issued fromm 1977 by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. 20 rupee notes were introduced two years later, followed by 500 and 1000 rupees in 1981, 200 rupees in 1998 and in 2006 2,000 rupee notes were introduced. These banknotes are very unusual in that they are printed vertically on the reverse. In 1998, a 200-rupee note was issued to commemorate the 50th anniversary of independence (1948–1998). This is the first polymer banknote issued in Sri Lanka. All other denominations are printed by the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom.
