Early artwork of a gold and blue rupee. Later games would introduce additional colors of Rupee, each with their own monetary value.

Rupees are the in-game currency used in The Legend of Zelda series. They are the primary form of currency in the land of Hyrule as well as other countries like Termina, Holodrum and Labrynna. Rupees resemble elongated hexagonal gemstones, color-coded according to their value. The most common Rupee colors are Green (1 Rupee), Blue (5 Rupees), and Red (20 Rupees) mirroring the colors of the three goddesses that created Hyrule. Rupees are used to purchase equipment from shops and can also be used to play mini-games in towns.
