Essexian Yen (¥) is the official currency of the Queendom of Essexia, and is managed, distributed, and printed by the Royal Bank of Essexia.

¥5, reverse

It was founded around June 2018, when Princess Jack created the first notes in Adobe Photoshop and sent them to the Essexia discord. They were plain, and featured an anti-forgery-edited image of Queen Terry, next to a coloured hexagon, which in turn was in front of the English flag. The Princess Dean notes were colour coded to depict the amount. These notes were later replaced by Rt. Hon. Lord Finn's more detailed, realistic, and redesigned notes, which are based off of the Royal Bank of Scotland's polymer notes. The Lord Finn notes featured a notable person in the history of Essex on the front (Gugliemo Marconi (Father of Radio, which was first built in Chelmsford, Essex) on ¥5, Alan Davies (comedian) on ¥10, Sadia Azmat (comedian) on ¥20, Edward Bell (Major General) on ¥50, and Arthur Fairshawe (Civil Servent) on ¥100), and Queen Terry on the reverse. Each note is colour coded depending on the amount depicted, and are horizontal. They also feature a transparant window, as well as several anti-forgery designs.

Special edition notes

To celebrate certain occasions or individuals within Essexia, sometimes special edition vertical notes are designed and printed. These are identical to the standard horizontal notes, however the people depicted and the backgrounds are rotated 90 degrees. They keep the same colour code as the amount they represent (e.g. ¥5=red, 10=blue, ¥20=green, ¥50=gold, ¥100=purple).
