I have recently made a comprehensive website for BankNotes from Ceylon including many Rix Dollar notes
at Lakdiva BankNote Collection to complement my older website on coins of Lanka
LakdivaCoins Collection

With best regards

Thanks for your comment.

I do have a significant collection of different Coupons Tea(4) and Rubber(17) from 1 to 1000 lbs, but they are not really currency as they don't have a denomination.  I have been told they exchanged like currency, but I have never seen a reference to the exchange rate between Rupees and permission to export a Pound of Rubber or Tea. 

When time permits I will add them to the 3 I have shown so far.

Most interesting are two which are counter-marked and revalued
