New Indian Rupee Currency Symbol

July 16th, 2010 · No Comments

New Indian Rupee SymbolA competition to design a new symbol for the Indian Rupee just came to a close. The new symbol is distinct from the generic rupee symbol (“Rs” / &#x20a8, Unicode U+20A8) used by a variety of rupee currencies and is destined for inclusion in the Unicode standard.

Personally I think the new symbol looks quite nice and is the best of the five finalists, though I prefer the fluid handwriting appearance shown in the finalist graphic. But then, that’s why fonts exist.
