The rupee replaced the old unit of Nepalese currency, the mohar, in the early 1930s. For a while banknotes in Nepal were undersigned by a Hindu high priest – probably the only currency in the world ever to do so. Nepal became a republic in 2008, which meant the change of the face of the note from its former monarch to Mount Everest, the new republic’s symbol.
