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

It was founded around June 2018, when Lord 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 King Terry, next to a coloured hexagon, which in turn was in front of the English flag. The Prince Dean notes were colour coded to depict the amount. These notes were later replaced by Rt. Hon. Earl Finn of Hawarden's more detailed, realistic, and redesigned notes, which are based off of the Royal Bank of Scotland's polymer notes. The Earl Finn notes featured a notable person in the history of Essex on the front: Guglielmo 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 Fanshawe (Civil Servant) on ¥100), and King Terry on the reverse. Each note is colour coded depending on the amount depicted, and are horizontal. They also feature a transparent 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/pink, 10=blue, ¥20=green, ¥50=gold, ¥100=purple).
