The larger the note the greater the value, but old notes are hard to tell apart. Coins are 1, 2 & 5 Rupees. These exchange rates were correct at the time of writing, but they do fluctuate.

Australian Dollar 01 = 75.53 Rupees Japanese Yan 10 = 8.16 Rupees

Small change (less than Ngultrum 100) is handy for taxis, tips, etc. Beware of TORN notes as locals will not accept them. Some notes may have a few holes in the centre which is OK, but torn edges are not. All exchanges must be done at an official exchange counter such as banks and major hotel desks.
