The Lyira (Lie-ra) is the currency unit of the Kingdom of Lytera. The currency was created in 2018 as a mere idea, and only came into production in August, with the design process starting in June.

All the Banknotes show significant figures and locations of Lytera. The currency is valued as equal to the British Pound in value, with the lowest note, the ½ Note being worth 50 pence in Pounds. The most noticiable shared feature is a picture of the current monarch, who, as of 2019, is HHRH King Alexander

Background

The idea for a currency first appeared in Lytera's early history, where a planned shared currency between it and The Republic of Clubhausia was considered. The plans fell through after the Great Ruislip War however, and Lytera stuck with using the Pound, Ideas for a currency then circulated again in 2018, during the anniversary of the Civil War. The currency was planned for a 2019 release, with work beginning on it's design in June of 2019. On August 10th, the currency came into circulation, the same day the designs were first shown.
